lmoloney_01A taoiseach in hiding and the country in chaos were uppermost in the mind of Clongowes Headmaster, Leonard Moloney SJ (pictured here in photo by student James Green, Poetry) as he watched the pupils perform Brian Friel’s uncannily apposite The Mundy Scheme in the college. This was just the start of a busy week for him as detailed in Keeper of the Woods in the Irish Times, Tuesday 13 Dec, which gave a flavour of his life in the school. His schedule also included a meeting as province consultor, a gathering of first year parents, meetings with the student council and senior management as well as with a group of refugees from Portlaoise, the annual past pupils v present debate, the launch of The Clongownian, interviews with sixth years seeking references for British Universities and – finally – an evening of Chinese food and chat with second year pupils.
