- This "poet" taught Johnstown N.S. Navan for 43 years retiring about 1892. He was a fluent Irish speaker and taught it to his pupils "after hours". He never lived outside Co. Meath but learned the tongue he loved from books, and got his pronounciation and "blas" from poor "knights of the road" whose wanderings in search of work or alms brought them from the gaelteacht to our County.When one of these happened to call at the teacher's little house in Johnstown he was a welcome guest, and after a good meal,, he and "the Master" walked off together for miles, the master, for the time being, becoming the PUPIL, who drank in sweet sounds of the language he loved.Every "poor man" was accosted in Irish when he called - if he answered in English he got his alms (ONE 1/2d/ ) and went off, but if Irish was his answer he was treated as a guest ( in spite of protests from some other members of the family )Tras-scríofa ag duine dár meitheal tras-scríbhneoirí deonacha.
