Retired members may be interested to listen to Conor Brady’s radio interview with Miriam O’ Callaghan. Conor grew up in Tullamore, the son of a Garda Superintendant. While still at school in Roscrea, Conor met his wife to be, Ann, who died last year. Straight out of college in 1969, he was sent to Belfast for The Irish Times as the Troubles erupted. After working in broadcasting and editing The Sunday Tribune, he returned to The Irish Times again and his editorship spanned three decades, which included major news events including the X Case; the Beef Tribunal; the election of Mary Robinson; the Good Friday Agreement; and of course the extraordinary story of Bishop Eamon Casey and Annie Murphy, which he published first. Since leaving The Irish Times, Conor has been a founding commissioner of GSOC, the Garda Síochána Ombusdman Commission; has lectured in New York and Dublin; writes a column for the Sunday Times; and has published two detective novels, with a third on the way in the next year.
If you have 55 minutes to spare, you will not be disappointed with Conor’s interview and his choice of music.
