Tommie Gorman

Never Better: My Life in Our Times

Venue: Kells Theatre

For more years than he probably cares to remember, journalist and broadcaster Tommie Gorman was RTÉ News Northern Editor, covering Northern Ireland news from 2001 and interviewing all the main players in Northern Ireland political life. Prior to that trickiest of assignments Tommie, from 1989, was the station’s European correspondent. After his retirement in 2021 Tommie wrote his autobiography Never Better: My Life in Our Times. None of the above, however, compares with his slavish devotion to the fortunes of Sligo Rovers Football Club and, despite all his award-winning work in Brussels and Belfast he is probably still best remembered for his interview with Roy Keane after the Saipan fiasco at the World Cup in 2002. Tommy will be in conversation with former Irish Ambassador to the UK, Adrian O’Neill
