    Biography

    I was fortunate enough to have met him on a number of occasions and he was a truly brilliant, yet also very humble and lovely man. RIP.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    "The great test over, while the gut´s still humming,/ This time it travels out of all knowing/ Perfectly aimed towards the vacant centre."
    It is from Seamus Heaney´s poem In Memoriam: Robert Fitzgerald.

    Heaney wrote great poetry, which surely will live on and on.
    Allezfred, good that you had the pleasure of meet him several times!

    Yes, I'm sure it will. He was already mentioned with the greats of Irish literature like Joyce, Yeats, Shaw and Beckett before he passed away.
