Presented and produced by Seán Delaney.

On this week's programme I speak to the main author of An Irishman's Diary in The Irish Times, Frank McNally. Frank was a keynote speaker at the 42nd annual conference of the Literacy Association of Ireland. Among the topics covered in the interview are the following:

  • Why Frank's family members were known by the nickname the “College” McNallys.
  • Among native English speakers, why only the Irish and the Scots use the expression “Amn’t I?”
  • Doing two Leaving Certificates and no Inter Cert
  • Doing a masters degree without doing a bachelors degree
  • How he goes about writing An Irishman’s Diary in The Irish Times
  • The books he read while attending the “University of Life”
  • Two English teachers who had a significant impact on him
