"In Conversation with Prof. Ronan McDonald". Do business and stimulate your Celtic soul at this edition of our “Connections” series, returning by popular demand to Buck Mulligan’s in Northcote – An Irish Whiskey Bar by night and Irish Specialty Bookshop and Cafe by day.

Newly-appointed Gerry Higgins Chair in Irish Studies at The University of Melbourne, Professor Ronan McDonald, will be in conversation with Chamber President, Fergal Coleman exploring the Irish Australian identity in a changing world and how it remains relevant to how we do business, with passion and authenticity. This will be very much an interactive session, you're invited to join the discussion, add to the debate and reconnect with "what makes us us", in fine company at a fantastic, intimate venue for a winter night.

There will be a drink on arrival and some Irish Australian finger food, courtesy of Eamonn and his team at Buck's.
