Úna-Minh Kavanagh.


Úna-Minh is the author of Anseo which is a memoir of a journey which started in Vietnam and documents a childhood spent in Kerry where her mother and grandfather would instill a love of the irish language. Inspired to write this love letter to irelsnd after a horrific racist incident in Dublin Úna-Minh talks to Andy about how from growing up a woman of colour in school to her time engaging online she is more than capable and practiced with dealing with trolls who just want to cause pain. Also Úna-Minh chats why the irish language is so important to her and why we need to celebrate life while we’re still here.

Plus as a dedicated member of the twitch community Úna-Minh talks a love of video games and how she uses them to spread messages of what’s important to her.

An absolute badass who is dedicated to no matter how hard a nasty a bad guy is, be it bowser or a bully , in the end hate will never win. 

All this and the return of the dreaded tape test.
