Sir Bob Geldof gives an inspiring talk to a packed Cultúrlann

E-mail Print PDF

Nine times Nobel Peace Prize nominee, rock musician, social activist, Renaissance man Sir Bob Geldof inspired Coláiste  Choilm staff and students on Friday, October, 12th.

' A Fanatic Heart', Bob Geldof's film documentary on W. B. Yeats prompted a request to Bob Geldof to come to Colaiste Choilm and read his favourite Yeats poems. He accepted.

All gathered were electrified as Bob Geldof spoke widely: on Irish history, the need to engage politically, to recognise and cherish life as opportunity, the need for courage to reappraise heroes, viewpoints and values, to be vigilant in these turbulent times and to be very wary of social media.

All were riveted.

His huge generosity was again evident as he and Ms Jeanne Marine remained with students who requested selfies, signatures and handshakes.
