On Friday, Matt Cooper did a ‘profile interview’ on the Last Word with Iona Institute Director, David Quinn.

In the interview, David speaks about his family’s background in journalism, his own entry into column writing and his founding of the Iona Institute. He also talks about how he came to identify more strongly with Catholicism after moving to Australia after he graduated from university.

Among other interesting highlights, he reveals his Grandfather, also a journalist, acted as a courier for Michael Collins during the War of Independence and even spoke with him on the night before he died.
