Banter – In Conversation with Fachtna Ó Ceallaigh @ Cruinniú na Cásca
Fachtna Ó Ceallaigh began his career writing about music for the Evening Press, but soon found his way to the other side of the fence. Over his career, the Dubliner has managed Clannad, The Boomtown Rats, Bananarama, The Bothy Band, Dónal Lunny, Morrissey (for seven eventful weeks), Ricky Gervais (when he was in the band Seona Dancing), Dread Broadcasting Corporation and, currently, Hare Squead. He has also been a DJ on the national airwaves and looked after U2’s record label Mother for a spell.
This Banter conversation with Fachtna Ó Ceallaigh will feature one of the few no-nonsense, straight-shooting managers in the game who still has loads to say and do.
Banter is presented by Jim Carroll.
