Professor Terry Dolan with Marion Finucane

A week ago our friend Professor Terry Dolan gave a powerful and moving interview with Marion Finucane on her RTÉ Radio 1 programme about the stroke he suffered three years ago. Click here to listen. Terry has given talks to generations of Columbans on subjects such as Hiberno-English, American English and slang.

And two more links: Terry's discussion of the great poet Geoffrey Chaucer on one of our podcasts and Stroke Ireland's site (including the F.A.S.T. campaign).

I heard it and was quite moved by his the point that I text the show. I'm the 'widow' whose text Marian read out towards the end of her show. If I remember, he found my comments funny! I trully wish him well.
