Author Lisa McInerney’s polyphonic plunge into contemporary Ireland

The award-winning author Lisa McInerney wraps up her literary trilogy with "The Rules of Revelation", a darkly comic foray into the world of drug dealers, sex workers, property developers and struggling artists. We discuss societal shifts in Ireland, as a new generation rejects the conservative, religious national identity that has characterised the country in the past, and the platform the arts provide for voices from all sectors of society, with key support from the current government. Lisa also weighs in on the growing popularity of Gaelic as a cornerstone of Ireland's linguistic and cultural heritage.
