Brother Benildus was greatly involved with many of the schools in the County of Cork. He worked in Greenmount School, St Joseph’s School, Presentation Brothers in Cork, and retired back to Turner’s Cross, where he had begun his teaching career. This recording provides glimpses of many of his experiences in each of these places. He describes the ways in which the Presentation Brothers created opportunities for students to get employment after leaving school. He also speaks about the way of life of a Presentation Brother – the commitments involved, their role in life and also his observations on education as he experienced it over the last half-century.
