May 20, 2022 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Killarney House

Join Dr. Kevin J. Power, lecturer in philosophy of mind, environmental ethics, philosophy of death and dying, as he discusses the complex yet captivating message of John Moriarty who weaves ecology, spirituality, philosophy, myth and folklore.

A native of Moyvane but living the last years of his life in Coolies, Mangerton, John Moriarty’s time spent in contemplation and reflection yielded monumental works such as Dreamtime, Invoking Ireland, and Night Journey to Buddh Gaia, all published between 1994 and his death in 2007.

Much more than an author, Moriarty can increasingly be seen in a prophetic light; ringing environmental alarm bells which are only just now resounding in public consciousness.

‘A Mind For Our Times’ lecture by Dr Power will explore the increasing relevance of this overlooked figure of Irish intellectual heritage.
