TK Whitaker, prepares for his 99th birthday.

TK Whitaker
TK Whitaker is credited with pulling the Irish economy out of the doldrums in the 1950s.  He later became governor of the Central Bank and beat Michael Collins to be awarded the accolade of the Greatest Irishman of the 20th century.

As he prepares for his 99th birthday about a week from now and indeed, as the next governor of the Central Bank prepares to take up his post, we thought what better time to discuss this man whose life spans the history of the Irish state.   Myles is joined by TK Whitaker’s biographer, Anne Chambers.
