Kevin Laheen SJ was in fine form for the launch of the second volume of his history of The Jesuits in Tullabeg. Dr Pat Donlan, director of the Tyrone-Gutherie Centre in Annamacharraig, Co. Monaghan was guest speaker at the event in the Milltown Park Institute on Wednesday, May 7th. She praised the historical detail and anecdotal entertainment that she believed characterised the book and her enthusisam and admiration for Kevin’s work ensured many copies went home safely tucked under attendees’ arms. Before they departed, the author, who celebrated his ninetieth birthday in February, extended another invitation for next year. With three chapters already completed, he hopes to launch the last volume in the series in 2010. The Jesuits in Tullabeg-The Final Curtain will mark a fitting end to a significant era in Irish Jesuit history.
