    Abstract

    It is with gratitude, and in a sense of pietas, that I take this opportunity to acknowledge the achievement of the single most important member of the diocesan clergy, and the re were many, who laboured pro Deo et pro patria (dochum g/6ire De agus on6ra na hl1ireann) in the course of the last 400 years. And it is no small testament to the influence of Seathrun Ceitinn's Foras Feasa that it inspired a democratic inclusiveness which could be said to have ultimately culminated in Donagh O'Malley's policy of free education. I had intended to say more on the continuity of that tradition, but decided instead to begin by citing what Sean 6 Rfordain wrote in his Diary some fifty years ago:' An ghrian ag saitheadh trfd an gceo. Mise sa /eabaidh. Forus Feasa an Cheitinnigh a leamh agam. Mairfidh cuimhne an Cheitinnigh go brtith. Ba thionsca/ach agus ba dhflis agus ba chumasach an duine e.
