Since the Celtic Tiger first roared back in the early 1990s, Ireland’s economic upturn has transformed the lives of many. But has this newfound prosperity also changed our core values? And if so, what does this say about us as a society? Was the Ireland of old a purer, simpler and therefore kinder society, or is this simply the worst kind of nostalgia?

Lending its collective experience and estimable insight to this timely debate is a heavyweight panel of Irish commentators: Independent Senator, Ivana Bacik; Roy Foster, the most eminent and distinguished of Irish historians; Alan Gilsenan, Ireland’s most prolific documentary maker and David McWilliams, economist, broadcaster and writer.

Together, this prodigious line-up of cultural movers and shakers unpicks the moral and social fabric of 21st-century Irish society

Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
