Not-so-‘final curtain!’

July 9, 2010 in General, News

klaheen_01_0Historian Todd Morrissey SJ launched the third volume of Fr Kevin Laheen’s History of Tullabeg, The Final Curtain, in Milltown Park on Wednesday 30 June, now available in the Sacred Heart Messenger Office: €20. He commended the author for his attention to detail, but he emphasised also the entertaining and informative nature of the stories recounted in this, the last book of Fr Laheen’s trilogy on the historic Jesuit landmark. Kevin Laheen himself was in top form, looking much younger than his 92 years and regaling his audience with stories of his encounters around every parish in Ireland in his days as a mission priest. He is pictured here, seated at the table at which Robert Emmet wrote his famous ‘speech from the dock’ – another final curtain.
