The death of Tom O’Gorman

Dear Editor, Tom O’Gorman is a tremendous loss to the intellectual fabric of our country. He was a highly educated, religious, peaceful and very good humoured man who did crucial work for, among others, The Iona Institute and the Pro-Life Campaign, behind the scenes and never sought the limelight. I first encountered Tom O’Gorman when I entered UCD as a student; Tom had graduated by that stage, but he returned often for pro-life events in the university and I was privileged to call him an acquaintance. Ireland is a poorer place for his premature passing, by a brutal act of murder. May others be inspired, by his good work, to take up his baton.

Yours etc.
