RIP“I think there’s something about the Irish experience — that we had to have a sense of humor or die,”
Sad news. My first thoughts are with his family and loved ones, who have had to go through this time, and have to adjust to the loss. This is a loss to Ireland and to the wider Irish diaspora and particularly to those many who were touched by his writing. For those people his memory however lives on through his books.Frank McCourt author of Angela's Ashes dies aged 78.
The master says it's a glorious thing to die for the Faith and Dad says it's a glorious thing to die for Ireland and I wonder if there's anyone in the world who would like us to live. My brothers are dead and my sister is dead and I wonder if they died for Ireland or the Faith. Dad says they were too young to die for anything. Mam says it was disease and starvation and him never having a job. Dad says, ''Och, Angela'', puts on his cap and goes for a long walk.
