05 Miriam O'Callaghan Interviews Michael Parkinson

The Event

This was the final event in the series of evening chats during the West Cork Literary Festival held at The Maritime Hotel in Bantry, County Cork.

Michael Parkinson is a world renowned interviewer, but in this instance, it is the national broadcaster Miriam O'Callaghan from RTE who puts Sir Michael 'in the hot seat'.  What an entertaining evening!  Ignoring the technical difficulties outlined later, this was the most enjoyable and entertaining evening of the series.  Great insights in to Michael's youth, his family background, people he has interviewed ... they worked as a team, totally at ease with each other and brought the audience into their intimate 'fireside chat'.  A great piece of work!
