Peter Casey’s approach may be different again but his deep interest in people will bring a whole new dimension to this conversation. Peter’s story covers continents, successes and failures, travel and home and this is a fantastic opportunity to hear him.“We also hope to have Connor & Ronan McGarvey of Donegal Pens with us on the night.
