You’re never too old to learn, and Father Harry Coyle, a resident at Moneymore Care Home in Magherafelt, proved just that.
The long standing resident at the Northern Ireland Care Home attended a very special graduation ceremony celebrating his honorary Doctorate from the Ulster University in recognition of his ‘lifelong dedication to the promotion and teaching of the Irish Language’.
The Ulster University Vice Chancellor Paddy Nixon attended the event along with a gathering of Father Harry’s closest friends and academic acquaintances from down the years.
Moneymore's Home Manager Ailish Devlin commented "It certainly is a one off for us, we have never hosted anything like this before. Father Harry has been living at Moneymore since 2012 and he is a delightful person to know. When the University contacted us Harry was initially reluctant to receive the award and that is a measure of his humility. However, some close friends persuaded him to go ahead and the team from the university were so accommodating in bringing the graduation ceremony to the home."
"Harry is a very special person and the tributes read out to him today show the depth of respect and admiration there is from the University staff, his former teaching colleagues and pupils from St Patrick’s in Dungannon and among the wider Irish language community. It was a very special day for Harry and for all of us here at Moneymore.”
Congratulations Father Harry.
