Britain's notorious rabble rouser will speak at the event in Dublin entitled Irexit:Freedom To Propser on 3 February at the RDS.
Other panelists speaking at the event include Independent Galway Councillor James Charity, Journalist John Waters and Sunday Times columnist Cormac Lucey.
It's organised by the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy party, of which Farage currently serves as President comprised of Eurosceptic MEP'S from mostly Britain and Italy.
The parties main policies centre around protecting borders and 'strengthening their own historical, traditional, religious and cultural values', they're anti single currency and pro 'direct democracy.'
Followers of the Leave campaign during the Brexit referendum will remember Farage especially for his overblown jingoistic anti muslim rhetoric.
Farage is also a close ally of U.S President Donald Trump; he was the first foreign politician invited to meet with President and has been fiercely protective of his policies during television interviews.
The event itself is free, and people can book a place online. We have heard that counter demonstrations are also expected to go ahead during the event.

Irexit, FFS.. what moron actually thinks this would be a good idea? A tiny island that punches so far above its weight, because of the FDI it gets as part of being an obliging EU member. And Farage has the temerity to think he's got something to offer us too. Fuck off mate. https://t.co/gCItJtPSoo

At the heart of the #irexit debate seems to be a tacit desire to become some sort of offshoot of the UK. No thanks.
