Eamon Doogue Remembered
I really did not know Eamon very well
but he was always at the RDS Divine Mercy Conferences
and Sr Briege’s big Masses in Phibsboro.
I really only bumped into him.
But he was always cheerful. A gentleman.
With a soft and crinkly face and smiling eyes.
And i remember his beautiful playing of the violin.
I always felt i had a friend in Eamon.
In prayer and in faith-filled music.
God, he stuck it well.
A great ad for the healing power of spiritual songs.
He never missed a Conference until he was well into his 90’s.
The stuff of legends. Dublin legends.
(You can see Eamon with Br Aloysius in the photo of one of the first Conferences. I am only 30 years old in this photo)
