I owe a lot to Shakespeare – like everyone else – particularly my English teacher, Eoin O’Moore…
Without Shakespeare I’d never have met “Mr O’Moore” in a Jesuit school Crescent College Limerick, Ireland.
Without Shakespeare, my English teacher would have had to resort to all sort of lesser mortals – & god knows what I’d have turned out like… certainly a very different sort of animal, man & human being. The influence of Shakespeare on my formation was profound – but, perhaps most of all, Shakespeare proved to me that some people can be great teachers.
RIP William Shakespeare
RIP Eoin O’Moore – you both live on. You are both with me ever step of the way.
In a series of blogposts, I plan to explore & share the consequences of my schooling.
