Joe Duffy

Broadcaster Joe Duffy is the presenter of Ireland’s most popular daily radio show, Liveline, on RTÉ Radio 1. He also presents Joe Duffy’s Spirit Level on RTÉ television and writes a weekly column for the Irish Mail on Sunday. Born in Dublin’s Mountjoy Square and reared in Ballyfermot, his bestselling memoir Just Joe was published in 2010.

His interest in researching and writing about the forgotten children killed in 1916 was sparked by an art project he undertook in Easter 2013 for the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation.

In 2014 he organised the first national ecumenical service of reclamation and remembrance for the children killed in the Easter Rising.
