    Ean Chair visits Australian Irish

    By Noreen Bowden | September 30, 2007

    Ean Chair Alan Hilliard, who is also Director of the Irish Bishop’s Commission for Emigrants, visited Australia this month for family reasons, but while he was there he visited with members of the Irish community. He spoke of how in a strange way their object was to be idle, but that their hands-on support is in fact vital to ensure that difficult situations do not deteriorate.
    “There is no formula other than human goodness, focused motivation, common sense and a cultural sensitivity that offers support and ultimately makes a difference,” he said. He also spoke of the “tyranny of distance” that can be lessened by better communication and interaction.
