MORIARTY

A MAN OF VISION

I have often written here about the late John Moriarty, philosopher and writer who spent his last days living at the foot of Mangerton Mountain in County Kerry. His charm was his personality as well as his mixture of profound ideas drawn from several world traditions though always seeming to draw back to a simple gospel fascination, and an intense appreciation of Christ's Passion. This fragment of an RTE documentary made a couple of years before his death gives a flavour of the man and his message. ~GOSh.~

A wonderfully confused old man, love to listen to him but find it almost impossible to follow what he goes on about.
