Travel through Ireland with Father Leo R. Ward, philosopher and theologian, as he observes the Irish people, landscape, and religion. (Based on his travels during the late 1940s.)
Leo R. Ward, C.S.C., was a professor of philosophy at the University of Notre Dame. The author of textbooks on philosophy and ethics, he also wrote several popular novels and was an award-winning poet. He was born in Melrose, Iowa in 1893, studied at Notre Dame, Catholic University, and Oxford, and was ordained a Holy Cross priest. His writings on Catholic education were used by Fr. Theodore M. Hesburgh, the president of Notre Dame, as the map to create a world-class Catholic university. He died in 1984.
