Join Michael Comyn for The Leap of Faith. A programme for people of many faiths and none.

The Leap of Faith Friday 2nd October 2020

On the programme tonight, author, journalist and commentator on religion Paul Vallely talks about the history of philanthropy and his new book Philanthropy, From Aristotle to Zuckerberg.

In Galway this week the bells of St. Nicholas' Collegiate Church have rung out at seven pm for seven minutes as the Church celebrates its 700th anniversary. The rector, The Very Rev Lynda Peilow, tells us more. We also meet two remarkable tour guides Shane Howell and Kenny Eivers who bring their insight from years in homelessness to The Secret Street Tours of Dublin.
