IEC2012 live – Justin Kilcullen
iCatholic.ie interviews at IEC2012
Monday 11th – Friday 15th June 2012, 12.00 – 12.30 GMT
iCatholic.ie did five programmes at IEC2012 that were streamed live on the internet, Monday to Friday from 12 noon to 12.30pm. The interviews took place on the balcony of the Main Exhibition Hall in the RDS (also known as Hall 1). The programme format consisted of interviewing three guests interspersed with some Congress News. The guests were a cross‐section of the speakers at the Congress along with some of the chief organisers. The full workshops of most of our guests will also be available on iCatholic.ie
The interviews were conducted by Ms Brenda Drumm (working in a personal capacity) from the Catholic Communications Office (CCO) of the Irish Bishops Conference which is based in Maynooth. Brenda also hosts (again working in a personal capacity) her own radio programme on a local radio station (KFM) in Kildare. The camera crew consisted of Irish Dominicans and other Congress volunteers, headed up by Br Luuk Dominiek Jansen OP who designed the Congress app. One of the features of that app is that it takes Congress video content from iCatholic.ie
