    • Dr Mark Dooley is an Irish philosopher, writer and journalist. He has lectured at NUI Maynooth and at University College Dublin, where he was Newman Scholar in Theology. From 2003-2006, he wrote for the Sunday Independent. In 2006, he began writing for the Irish Daily Mail, where his weekly column ‘Moral Matters’ ran for almost a decade. He has published eleven books, the most recent of which are Moral Matters: A Philosophy of Homecoming (2015), and Conversations with Roger Scruton (2016). Writing on his website, Dr Dooley describes himself as ‘a man defined in and through his family, his faith, his love of country, home and settlement…That is why my principal task has become that of seeking to reattach people to those things which endure beyond the fleeting moments of our earthly sojourn.  I have come to see that where love, laughter, beauty and joy no longer exist we simply cannot flourish’.  In 2019, he will launch a series of speaking events to show why this is so.
