Tonight, three of Pádraig’s lecturers from TCD came to visit and they brought this with them for him to keep for the night and to be returned to TCD tomorrow.


I had never seen this. I have never been in this room, Seomra na Gaeilge, that he had worked for so much – though I’ve seen signposts on TCD campus pointing towards it. How proud he was when this room was opened. How proud I am to see this big picture that hangs on the walls of that room he had pushed for so hard.

Other things happened today. Nothing that would compare to this.
