  As the CEO of Irish Central, activist, writer and journalist Niall O'Dowd is, without a doubt, one of the most influential Irish people living in America. This week, Jarlath had the pleasure of speaking with him about his fascinating life and journey from Tipperary to America.   With refreshing honesty, Niall speaks about how it is a worrying time to be in America (19:00), the truth behind being the negotiator between Sinn Féin and The White House during the Good Friday Agreement process (33:00) and why he firmly believes Trump will not see a second term as President (51:00).   From discussing his relationship with the Clintons (27:00) to his work supporting the undocumented Irish in America (47:00), the simple thing that journalism schools are failing to include in their education (Patreon Extended Cut Only) and much more, this is a fascinating conversation with a man who has done incredible work for Irish abroad.
