Craziness endured and great people encountered

Forty one years ago today the Germans beat the Dutch in the World Cup in Munich.

Also on that day Martin Boyle and I were ordained Dominican priests in St Mary's Priory, Tallaght.

We often meet, talk and laugh about it all, the experiences we have gathered, the nonsnese we have seen, the craziness we have endured and the great people we have encountered.

Martin is well known across the city as a counsellor. A man of kindness and wisdom.

I missed the ordination ceremony you speak of, Michael. On that same day I heard radio commentary on that World Cup Final while on my way by train from Frankfurt-am-Main to Salzburg.
