Ian Boyne immortalised

Published:Wednesday | December 20, 2017 | 12:00 AM


It has always been my life's goal to sit across from Ian Boyne on the illustrious programme that is Profile and regale tales of the past that led to such a moment in time, when, for once, my story would inspire so many. If I ever go on Profile, it will never be the same.

The ancient Greeks thought of immortality as your name living on through the centuries on men's tongues. If we are to ascribe to what the ancient Greeks did then, Ian Boyne would have achieved immortality.

As one of the most brilliant sons of the soil who has contributed so significantly to his country, we all owe a debt of gratitude to this great man.
