Terry Dolan

Our friend Professor Terry Dolan returned to the Meaning of Words slot on Sean Moncrieff's afternoon Newstalk Radio show today, to a warm public welcome. Terry suffered a stroke in February 2008, and has been recuperating since. He talked to Sean Moncrieff about this experience, and also about the origins of medical words.

We're looking forward to welcoming Terry back to St Columba's sometime this term; he's been visiting the College and talking to pupils about such topics as Geoffrey Chaucer, Hiberno-English and 'bad' language for 35 years - see previous reports on his visits in 2007 and 2006.
