Tom Murphy Ireland is in the ideal position to recover from the recession

@tom_murphy will discuss “Ireland is in the ideal position to recover from the recession very quickly and that the only thing holding things up is that Irish people can’t see it themselves”

Tom Murphy has worked as a producer/cameraperson specialising in current affairs and documentaries filming in many different environments, hostile and otherwise, throughout the world. In 1982, he spent three months behind the Russian lines in Afghanistan with the Mujahidin making a documentary. He has won Emmy awards for his coverage of the Israeli invasion of Lebanon, a Moscow documentary shoot and for his footage of the Iraq War, filmed over more than three months in Baghdad in 2003, some of which was used in the Michael Moore film “Fahrenheit 9/11”. He was at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin on 9 November 1989. All the earliest pictures of Germans breaching the Berlin Wall were Tom’s. His assignments have included the Bosnian War, US operations in Somalia, the 1994 Sarajevo marketplace bombing and, from 2004 through to 2008, location filming in the Korengal Valley and Helmand Province, Afghanistan with American military forces. More recently he received a Polk Award for secretly filming in Burma in the aftermath of the Saffron Revolution. His most recent assignment took him on a tour of four African countries documenting the growing influence of both China and America in the region.
