Module Description

How can we speak about faith today in a secular age? Can religion be a valuable resource for the public sphere, a partner of reason, and a repository of wisdom that can be “translated” into secular truths? This module considers such questions with the assistance of people who have unique experience in this area such as RTÉ presenter Joe Duffy and Philip Mulryne, the former Manchester United footballer who is now a Dominican friar. The module is intended for those who feel the need for new answers to old questions. 

Joe Duffy is a RTÉ personality and best known as the presenter of “Liveline” and “The Meaning of Life”. He is author of bestselling books.

Philip Mulryne is a former Manchester United soccer professional and international for N. Ireland. He joined the Dominican Order in 2012.

John MacKenna is a playwright, novelist and RTÉ radio and television presenter. He was a lifelong friend of Leonard Cohen.
