Former Ireland manager Brian Kerr is among the guests at a new festival beginning tonight at the Twisted Pepper in Dublin City. The Back Page is a new event talking all kinds of sports, for all kinds of sports people.
As well as being an astute and sharp pundit, Kerr has been an international manager (Republic of Ireland, Faroe Islands) and a club manager (St Patrick’s Athletic) so he knows all about controlling, directing and guiding the team from the sideline. The Back Page will quiz him about what it takes to be a manager, what makes a good – and bad – coach and who he rates in the game.
Presented by Bodytonic and Banter, Kerr is the first speaker in the weekend event that also includes Ken Doherty, Shane McGrath, Vincent Hogan and Steve Redmond, among a host of others.
The full schedule and tickets are available at www.onthebackpage.com. Tickets can be bought for each individual talk as well as a limited run of weekend passes.
