Seán Mac Réamoinn

<em>Journalist Seán Mac Réamoinn dies in Dublin hospital aged 85 years</em> was one of many articles and obituaries in which reference was made to Seán Jesuit education. In the <em>Irish Times </em>Deaglán de Bréadún writes, <br />
<blockquote>One of Ireland’s leading broadcasters and journalist in Irish and English, Seán Mac Réamoinn, died at St Vincent’s University Hospital, Dublin, yesterday morning aged 85 years.<br />
A prominent figure in the Irish language movement and many other areas of cultural life, Mr Mac Réamoinn was a former Controller of Radio Programmes and Director of External Relations with RTÉ.<br />
He was born in Birmingham on November 27th, 1921, the son of James Redmond from Boolavogue, Co Wexford and Wilhelmina née Bruen of Sligo. Seán’s parents soon returned to Ireland and he was educated in Dublin; in Clonmel, where he was taught by the Christian Brothers; and at Coláiste Iognáid, under the Jesuits, in Galway.</blockquote>
