Starting on Monday, I will be having a blogalogue with Pat Coyle, the Communications Manager for the Irish Jesuits.
I heard her laugh in a large lecture hall at University College Dublin on our second day there in 1976 (!) and immediately told myself that I had to get to know whomever was responsible for that infectious roar. Pat and I have been fast friends ever since.
Pat has been a professor of Philosophy, a journalist (with both the BBC and RTE – Ireland’s national broadcaster) and she continues to write and speak extensively. She is sports mad and has two grown children, Sadhbh (I kid you not – pronounced “Saive”) and Paul Og (Paul Jr.)
Pat and I have sent each other five questions and because, unlike Meredith, Pat doesn’t have her own blog, I’ll post our reflections on alternating days for the next two weeks.
I hope you’ll enjoy the dialogue half as much as I will.
