Galway Bishop Refuses to Resign

M

ARTIN Drennan, currently Bishop of Galway, has refused to stand down after being named in a report about clerical sex abuse in the Dublin archdiocese.The longawaited Murphy Report found that child abuse was widespread in Dublin. In addition to identifying numerous cases of abuse it listed five bishops who were not directly involved but did little to prevent abuse or to curb the activities of clerical pedophiles known to them. Under intense public pressure, all four other bishops resigned following publication of the report. Drennan was auxiliary bishop in Dublin from 1997 to 2005 but felt no compulsion to resign because the report “says nothing negative about me.” Bishop of Limerick Donal Murray stood down when the report said his inactivity in dealing with a known pedophile priest was “inexcusable.” Former auxiliary bishops of Dublin Eamonn Walsh and Raymond Field deliberated for a couple of weeks before they too resigned. Bishop of Kildare James Moriarty then offered his resignation to Pope Benedict.The Vatican is expected to accept his offer. With four resignations already announced, public attention has switched to Bishop Drennan’s steadfast resistance. Marie Collins, one of the Dublin victims of clerical sex abuse, told reporters that the Bishop of Galway was taking the wrong course of action.“The other four bishops have now realized the harm that it was doing to the Church staying in position,” she said. “We need at this point, for the good of the Church, to know that the men at the top who were there during the period of the Murphy Report are willing to accept their responsibilities. I just think Bishop Drennan is not doing the Church or himself any favors by staying where he is.”

“I passionately believe that in this new reality that companies, individuals and countries who display the necessary dexterity, flexibility and foresight to anticipate how best to handle this new world order will be those who set aside the ordinary way of thinking, people like our honoree [Liam Casey] today, old ways of thinking about the world and apply completely new logic to pursue commercial opportunities.These opportunities are now happening faster and more globally than ever before because being big no longer makes any difference. It doesn’t really matter. Sometimes the opposite can be true. I believe that in the future – at least the foreseeable future – primary success will depend on developing characteristics that enable what I call distinct differentiation.The future for all but the largest democracies will be about the development of multiple microeconomies. . . . “I am here to tell you, the reason I took this job, apart from a desire to serve the country and take the opportunity to make a difference in some small way if I could, is because I truly believe that this is a unique opportunity to shine a light on a place in the world that truly is, independent of politics and the past and the things we know about, because of the independent characteristics… is one of the best places in the world that is best positioned to take advantage of this new complex operating environment. Precisely because of its size, its young workforce, its superb infrastructure, its proximity to Europe, its low-cost operating environment, and its history of having thousands of small to medium-size enterprises, think clusters, [Northern Ireland] is ideally suited to the kinds of economic modules that I believe are going to drive innovation and organic growth in the world for the next, at least, decade in almost every sector. . . . “My message is simple: this is indeed a changing world, but one filled with incredible opportunity. I believe Northern Ireland is one of those locations ideally placed to take advantage of that opportunity. In the weeks and months ahead, working with many people in this room, I intend to do all in my power to ensure that every company or person in every state in America who is interested in part of that journey gets to experience what I’ve just told you about. Something special is happening here, the momentum is with this region; the goodwill is there for it in abundance. I look forward to working with all of you to help take it to the place where I think it is destined to go.”

“So many of the Chinese companies we work with now are looking at, how can they manage global business in a better way? So that’s where I see opportunities arise. People have asked me about opportunities for U.S. companies and European companies and right next to our office in Shenzhen, about four years ago, this fantastic shopping mall opened. And it has all of the top brands, like Fifth Avenue, all of the top fashion brands. I went in there about a month after it opened.The two busiest stores in the mall: one was the Disney Store, and the other was the Coca-Cola store. I don’t think that any other country has the power to build brands and to create value from brands than America. People are really drawn to American brands, and that is a huge opportunity. …We work with companies that are passionate about their brands, they’re passionate about design, and they’re passionate about consumer experience. And that’s where companies, in this new technology, in the new globalization, that’s where companies can really win. It’s about focusing on those details, about being the best at what you can do. . . . “People often ask me, has your Irishness helped, over the years, in going through the PCH story so far? And it has, it’s been a huge, huge help.What I’ve seen in Ireland, and you see it as you travel, when you meet Irish people abroad – one of the great Irish values is compassion, and this is something that has helped us to travel a lot.When you go to different parts of the world and you meet somebody Irish, it’s that you listen to people and you talk to people, and you care, and people like that. It is one of the great Irish values.”

McCarthy’s Typewriter Sold at Christie’s

T

he typewriter previously belonging to author Cormac McCarthy went up for sale at Christie's auction house in New York in early December and sold for a far larger amount than anyone expected – well over twelve times the highest projected value and almost five thousand times the price McCarthy originally paid for it ($50 in 1963). In the end, an American collector bought it for $254,500, although the high estimate was a comparatively small $15,000-20,000.When you think about all the stories that have made their way out into the world through those keys, the price doesn't seem quite so overwhelming. Some truly amazing works of literature were created on that quarter-million-dollar typewriter, including All the Pretty Horses, The Road, No Country for Old Men, and Blood Meridian.The proceeds will be donated to the Santa Fe Institute, a private, non-profit independent education and research center. In a letter accompanying the green Olivetti typewriter, McCarthy said,“It has never been serviced or cleaned other than blowing out the dust with a service station hose…I have typed on this typewriter every

22 IRISH AMERICA FEBRUARY / MARCH 2010

book I have written including three not published. Including all drafts and correspondence I would put this at about five million words over 50 years.” The sheer durability of this typewriter is amazing. Glenn Horowitz, the rare book dealer in charge of the auction, was quoted in The New York Times as saying,“When I grasped that some of the most complex, otherworldly fiction of the postwar era was composed on such a simple, functional, frail-looking machine, it conferred a sort of talismanic quality to Cormac's typewriter. It's as if Mount Rushmore was carved with a Swiss Army knife.” Cormac McCarthy is the author of ten novels, one screenplay, two plays, and several short stories. Many of his works are recognized today as some of the most powerful pieces of literature produced in the last half-century. He has received numerous accolades, including the Pulitzer Price in 2007 for The Road and the National Book Award in 1992 for All the Pretty Horses. No Country for Old Men was made into the Oscar-winning movie of the same name in 2007. – Anne Thompson

The Crowleys refer to themselves as “a very average American family” who simply did “what almost any other parents would have wanted to do” in the face of a situation that was presented by the medical establishment to be hopeless.

F R Brendan S E R On Playing the Real John Crowley Brendan Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name might be most often associated with his work on major high-tech Hollywood movies like The Mummy series, George of the Jungle, Looney Tunes: Back in Action and Journey to the Center of the Earth. But in conversation, his thoughtful, halting speech and meaningful insights on his most recent role, that of John Crowley in Extraordinary Measures, are reflective of the emotional depth that he has brought to films like Gods and Monsters, School Ties and Crash.

You’re a Canadian-American actor, but as you and all your brothers have recognizably Irish names [Kevin, Regan and Sean], there must be Irish heritage there somewhere.

Your career has always included a balance of family-friendly action movies, comedies and more serious, socially compelling dramas – I’m thinking of Gods and Monsters, School Ties and Crash. Can you talk about the progression of your acting and how you decide which roles to take?

Irish America’s Top 100 Issue People, Places and Pleasures APRIL / MAY 2010 Irish America celebrates its 25th year with the exclusive release of a one-of-a kind issue. This issue, on newsstands in March, highlights the top travel spots in Ireland, corners of Ireland around the globe, and a special salute to the most influential and inspiring people of the decade.

“I don’t think I can recall any jolting surprise, just a thickening of the texture of experience. After I arrived in Dublin, the taxi driver took me to the center of town. I told him to turn at the Custom House. He turned to me in surprise and said, ‘I thought you said you had never been here before.’ I hadn’t, I just had an instinctive sense of place.” – Thomas Flanagan, Irish America interview, January 1987

CATY BARTHOLMEW

Nell spoke as Gaeilge the Galway Gael at that with a growl in her voice she made her point she wore men’s boots tied up with twine laces they are covered in turf as she sits at her spinning wheel mysteriously producing fine yarn

in a strange way I regarded the crickets as my friends they made a welcome noise in the stillness of the night as I sometimes lay awake with a heavy heart longing for home

I hear her still with her seagull’s voice I see her still with her stick in the air which she used to nudge me into submission by the time I had learned the cupla focal she lay silent in the darkness of a shady grave behind letterfrack post office

she came by each week from the nearby isle to chat with her sister in whose house I lay at night listening to the crickets who in the darkness came out to play

Nell was brown eggs, flouncing black skirts and never was seen without her Galway shawl Nell spoke as Gaeilge very loud and very fast she did her best to pass on this gift to me getting angry and threatening when her questions went unanswered

I feel her still and I hear her still when the winds pour wetly and the cupla focal come over the air waves with so many questions unanswered – Marie Sheridan (2009)

Tara Dougherty spoke to Keane about the novel and its correlation with her own life.
