On our 25 th festival birthday, we choose to celebrate and contemplate middle-age! Chaired by Irish Times columnist and writer Hilary Fannin, with the help of artist John Byrne, marketing and advertising guru Pearse McCaughey, and Director of the Mercer’s Institute for Successful Ageing, St. James’s Hospital/TCD, Professor Rose Anne Kenny, the 2020 Bealtaine discussion will take a look at this pivotal time between ‘youth’ and ‘older age’.  Presented in partnership with Creative Life at Mercers Institute for Successful Ageing and the National College of Art and Design.
