Danny Morrison Interview



In our season one finale we have an exclusive interview with Danny Morrison. Danny was for many years one of the most prominent members of the republican movement as Sinn Fein’s Director of Publicity. Now a full time writer, Danny is also a former political prisoner.

In a wide ranging interview with Jim Slaven they discuss Danny’s new novel, The Wrong Man, as well as Irish republicanism, Brexit, the DUP and the ongoing struggle for Irish reunification and independence.
