For the month of August, Soul Waves Radio will be reliving some interviews from the past. First published in Sept 2005, this piece looks a Glenstal Abbey, a Benedictine monastery in County Limerick.
Colman O Clabaigh OSB is a monk of Glenstal Abbey, where he is the monastery librarian. In this interview he talks about the revival of interest in monastic life in Ireland in the late 19th century, how Ireland had an ancient Benedictine tradition and the essence of the rule of St. Benedict and how an enthusiastic primary teacher sparked his great love of history.
