The Explainer: How could Golfgate impact Irish people’s behaviour?

We speak to Pete Lunn, a behavioural scientist from the ESRI.

THE LAST WEEK has seen the news cycle dominated by Golfgate, where an Oireachtas Golf Society dinner resulted in public outcry and anger, and multiple resignations of high-profile political figures.

It’s been a moment of reckoning for the higher echelons of power in the country, as people have questioned why certain individuals behaved the way they did in the face of Covid-19 restrictions.

But could Golfgate impact on our behaviour, and more generally, what can we learn about how people behave during this time?

To find out more about this, we invited Pete Lunn, a behavioural scientist, onto this week’s podcast.
