Michael Hayes RIP

The current issue of 'The Tablet' carries an obituary on Michael Hayes, President of Mary Immaculate College, Limerick.

In the piece the reader is told that Fr Hayes, in his inaugural address as President of Mary Immaculate College, spoke with an assured daring, which conveyed an unforgettable vision of Catholic education which startled even those who knew him well.

Yet, never once in the obituary is there a single quote from that inaugural address.

Michael Hayes, priest, teacher and Limerick man, was born in Limerick on September 17, 1957 and died on Easter Saturday, April 15, 2017.
