John Kelly

Donal Dineen and John Kelly to speak at Young Hearts Run Free Event

Delighted to be part of the The Young Hearts Run Free event in support of the Simon Community. Tues 21st at the Unitarian Church, St. Stephen's Green. Dublin. 8pm.

On November 3rd, I'll be at the National Gallery of Ireland. I'm honoured to have been asked to deliver a lecture entitled – “Image of a Star: le Brocquy’s Bono”.

The event begins with a glass of wine at 6.30pm – the lecture starts at 7pm and is followed by discussion. Tickets  are available in advance from The National Gallery.

It’s a 40 minute talk and taking alot of time to prepare. We're not sure Bono will be there in person but I’ve promised to send him a copy if he can’t make it.  I’m a great fan of both Louis and Bono so hope to see you there on 3rd.  Please don’t ask me any hard questions!

Update: The National Gallery have added a video of the talk to their YouTube channel


Really looking forward to seeing Elvis Costello at the Sligo Live Festival on 29th October.

We had a lot of good times when he lived in Dublin – we presented many shows together on Radio Ireland, Today FM and RTE - which you can find here.
