stephen-kinsellaNenagh Arts Centre begins a series of debate and discussion with a visit from respected University of Limerick Economics lecturer Stephen Kinsella at 8 p.m. on next Wednesday, November 17th in the Town Hall in Banba Square, Nenagh.

Entitled ‘Here’s to Future Days – The Midwest: Where Will The Jobs Come From?’; Dr. Kinsella will look at the choices the mid-west region has made in it’s recent past in the employment area and the prospects for the future. Kinsella will also look at how recovery can be generated and maintained in a troublesome economic climate. A Lecturer in Economics at Kemmy Business School in the University of Limerick, he is the author of ‘Ireland in 2050: How we will be Living’ and ‘Understanding Ireland’s Economic Crisis: Prospects for Recovery’. His research spans the area of computable economics, health economics and experimental economics.

Manager at the Arts Centre Brendan Maher notes: “The Arts Centre has a community ethos and as such we wish to bring writers and thinkers who deal with various topics to Nenagh to talk with a local audience. We call these discussions ‘Town Hall Meetings’ and our objective is to stimulate debate on matters that have series implications for all of us, but often don’t seem to be looked at in an open public forum at present. Stephen Kinsella has spoken on the current economic situation for the Marian Finucane Show and on Drivetime on RTE Radio One and we are delighted to bring him to Nenagh to speak.”

Tickets for Town Hall meetings are free and can be booked by calling the Centre on 067 34900 or by calling in to the Arts Centre reception. More details on Arts Centre events at
