Life And Experiences Of Paddy Duffy

Play

Noel speaks to PADDY DUFFY, author and broadcaster.

He talks about how his first novel came about thanks to a theme that came from the news at the time, what encouraged him to write the book, his concerns about young people’s general interest in politics, his beliefs on the Irish identity and his involvement in various TV programmes including Top Gear.

He also talks about how he prefers to do a lot of things at the same time rather than focus on one thing, the issues with living in London, how technology has almost given people a separate social life, the idea of his most recent novel “Do You Know Who’s Dead?” and what sums up Irish people with dealing with particular problems.
