Mathematical (and Poetic) Offerings From the Land of Saints and Scholars

Mathematical (and Poetic) Offerings From the Land of Saints and Scholars

Interesting aticle which also includes a Reference to the Russell Library and  a piece on De Brún who earned a doctorate from the Sorbonne in 1913, under Émile Picard, and the same year was ordained a priest at the Irish College in Paris. He soon returned to Ireland, first as Professor of Mathematics at St. Patrick's College, Maynooth, and later as president of University College Galway.
