London Independent newspaper journalist and award-winning writer, Robert Fisk is coming to Clonmel next month as the guest of the Junction Festival.

Fisk has been a witness to every major event in the Middle East over the last 30 years. Based in Lebanon, he is not just well informed on Middle Eastern politics; he is outspoken, some might say opinionated and rarely pulls his punches. Fisk is also one of the few western journalists to have interviewed Osama Bin Laden.

He previously appeared in Clonmel at the White Memorial Theatre during the South Tipperary Writers Festival 10 years ago.

The date and venue for his Clonmel appearance will be announced shortly.
