This two-day meeting of elderly people from a variety of professional backgrounds, was broadcast in fourteen parts on RTÉ Radio 1 as 'The Tinakilly Senate' from 15 November 1993. The programme in which Maev Conway-Piskorski featured was broadcast on 27 December 1993. The series was made to mark the European Year of Older People.
