He has challenged the status quo on a range of issues, beginning in the 1960s with the Language Freedom Movement, which contested the orthodoxy that the Irish language should be imposed upon an unwilling people. He rose to particular prominence in the mid-1960s as a founder of the Reform movement, which campaigned against corporal punishment in schools, making a famous appearance on The Late Late Showin 1967. As the show ended, he called out to the cameras the immortal words: “As I sit here tonight, the Irish Christian Brothers are abusing our children.” Spoken more than 40 years before the publication of the Ryan and Murphy reports, those words accurately portrayed the brutally abusive regimes operating in schools run by the Christian Brothers and other religious orders – long before the abuse had been acknowledged by anyone in authority.
