John Moriarty Memorial Lecture – In Search of a Seal’s Breathing Hole – Mary Mcgillicuddy
Originally from Cork, and now based in Listowel, Mary McGillicuddy has lived and worked in North Kerry for the past forty years. During a long career in education, she made the acquaintance of the extended family of John Moriarty, and eventually of John himself. Fascinated by both his story and his themes, she embarked on a voyage into his books. This enormously enriching personal experience left her with a sense of the importance and the urgency of his message. Recognising that his own books can be daunting, she set about writing a book that might provide the key to open the door into his genius, to ensure that his legacy will not be lost. That book, John Moriarty, Not the Whole Story, was published in 2018.
