In this recording Brother Benildus recalls the huge influence held by the Presentation Brothers, and his own input into organising groups of Brothers on holiday trips abroad in the early seventies. He recalls their very first trip, a camping trip to Scotland, and he speaks at great length about their experiences abroad. 1994 was the 150th anniversary of the death of their founder, Brother Ignatius Rice, and Brother Benildus’s memorable trip to the Vatican on that occasion is described. He discusses the major role that the Presentation Brothers have played in the past in Irish education, and the role that they would hope to play into the future.
