Can faith inform secular affairs while respecting freedom of conscience? This is one of the questions up for discussion at the Sixth Slí Eile Pub Conversation, which will be held at the Belvedere Hotel, Great Denmark Street, Dublin 1, on 11 March between 7.30pm and 9.30pm. To help bring issues into focus, Senator Ronan Mullen will be present as guest speaker. Ronan Mullen was chosen in the last elections to represent the NUI constituency. As a senator he aims ‘to be a consistent, constructive advocate for a society where every person is respected and for socially responsible policies in a globalised world’.
