Michael Lillis - The Irish Aviation Diplomat - Episode 5

Michael Lillis navigated the corridors power in Geneva as Ireland's youngest ambassador to the U.N. and as a chief advisor to the late Garret Fitzgerald before finding his way into aviation. Today on The Flying Irishman, he sits down for the first time with Jarlath Regan to talk about his journey and the extraordinary career he has made for himself in aircraft leasing. In this wide ranging conversation, Mick as he is known to his friends, opens up about what he believes is the future of the EU post-Brexit and the incredible story of how his meeting with Éamon de Valera led to him being "sent down" to work with Charlie Haughey.
