Doctor John Nolan has never been a man to do things by halves. Only last weekend, the Carrick-on-Suir man, who grew up just a stone’s throw from the Clancy Brothers homestead on William Street, ran a half-marathon in just over 80 minutes.
Moments after wrapping up this interview with The Munster Express, John set off for his first Irish lesson since his Carrick CBS days, not because he has to have more than just the ‘cúpla focail’. But plainly and simply because he wants to.
John is, as this interviewer should know (as a former schoolmate of his), and always has been, a doer: a man that sets about doing a job brilliantly well and rarely, if ever, fails to deliver.
