In this recording Dan Donovan focuses on his teaching career. He recalls his own schooldays at the Presentation Brothers’ School in the Mardyke, from 1932. Teachers such as Connie Buckley made a great impression on him and Dan achieved first place in Ireland in English. He also recalls at great length his student days in UCC, speaks about his teaching career, and the formation of a guild to perform some magnificent plays. The people who came together to achieve this were all fondly remembered. He recalls the followers of the amateur movement, the drama festivals, and the burgeoning interest in choral singing, drama and sculpture.

This recording was made in the Bon Secours Hospital, Cork, during the last weeks of Charlie Hennessy’s long and eventful life. His courage and enthusiasm for all things cultural was quite evident in this recording. Charlie Hennessy grew up in George’s Quay. His father was a blacksmith who provided the service of rubbish collection for Cork Corporation. Charlie attended Presentation College, and he recalled his time in education. The recording continued with his great memories of the Cork Opera House, and his position there as Chairman. He said that Cork was a great opera city and recalled that the Opera House would be packed every Monday night. He gave great credit to the James Stack School of Music. Charlie explained how he became the first ‘Cha’, and performed in the stage shows. He had fond memories of the old original Opera House, and of the great outpouring of emotion and feelings of loss when it was burnt down. He also spoke about the trust-fund set up by the Cork people, and of his great ambition to turn the Opera House into a municipal theatre owned by City Hall. This is indeed a most valuable recording, compiled with one of Cork’s most beloved citizens.

Born near Askeaton, County Limerick, Brother Matthew Feheney’s interest in local history was fostered there during his early years and he has written much about the area. This recording focuses initially on tracing his own family roots. He recalls joining the Presentation Brothers, having completed his studies at Irish College. His first appointment was to Mardyke House, where he remained from 1954 to 1959. The following 16 years he spent in Trinidad, where he did a Masters degree in Education. He describes how the small school in which he worked competed with the larger colleges and proved successful in competitions and examinations. He speaks at length about the evolvement of the educational system in Ireland. He describes working for a doctorate on the history of the education of Irish children in London at the end of the nineteenth century, while he was staying at the Presentation Brothers’ house in London. This is indeed a most informative recording.

Brother Benildus was greatly involved with many of the schools in the County of Cork. He worked in Greenmount School, St Joseph’s School, Presentation Brothers in Cork, and retired back to Turner’s Cross, where he had begun his teaching career. This recording provides glimpses of many of his experiences in each of these places. He describes the ways in which the Presentation Brothers created opportunities for students to get employment after leaving school. He also speaks about the way of life of a Presentation Brother – the commitments involved, their role in life and also his observations on education as he experienced it over the last half-century.

In this recording Brother Benildus recalls the huge influence held by the Presentation Brothers, and his own input into organising groups of Brothers on holiday trips abroad in the early seventies. He recalls their very first trip, a camping trip to Scotland, and he speaks at great length about their experiences abroad. 1994 was the 150th anniversary of the death of their founder, Brother Ignatius Rice, and Brother Benildus’s memorable trip to the Vatican on that occasion is described. He discusses the major role that the Presentation Brothers have played in the past in Irish education, and the role that they would hope to play into the future.
