Christy Kenneally is a well-known Irish speaker, writer, and broadcaster. Christy presented RTE's No Frontiers series and has ten books in print.
Maura's Boy, The New Curate, Life After Loss and Small Wonders have all featured on Ireland's Bestseller list. Christy has also published three novels in the Michael Flaherty series, starting with Second Son and The Remnant. The third book, Tears of God, is now out in paperback.
Christy scripted and presented a series for television on the great religions of the world as experienced through their art and architecture, entitled Heaven on Earth.
Broadcast on TG4 and Channel 4, his next documentary Na Déithe Caillte, (The Lost Gods), was a compelling landmark series that explored the religions that once lorded over vast and powerful empires, wondered at their distinctive cultures, art and architecture and detailed their destruction. In our time when tyrants and theocracies still exist, when religions veer towards fundamentalism and live under threat of extinction from scientific discovery and the rise of materialism, Na Déithe Caillte was a timely series.
Christy’s third television series, Críostaíocht, was broadcast on TG4, National Geographic, Smithsonian, the History Channel, and Canadian television. It dealt with the rites, beliefs and practices of Christianity throughout the world, from Russia to South America.
Christy was honoured with The Order of the Amazon by the Polish Cancer Society, in recognition of his twenty years of involvement with Cancer Groups throughout the world. Henry Kissinger and Hillary Clinton are fellow recipients of the award.
Christy is a graduate from the National University of Ireland with a Bachelor of Arts Degree and a Bachelor of Divinity. He has his own management training company with an extensive list of corporate clients including IBM, Lotus, Motorola, Analog Devices, O2, the Mars Corporation etc.
Christy is a very perceptive and humorous speaker. He engages easily with his audience and is highly entertaining while at the same time delivering the keynote messages eloquently and with impact. He is a much in demand keynote and motivational speaker at conferences worldwide.
Christy is married and lives in Wicklow.
