Eddie Kennedy Dublin, Ireland, b. 1960

Ballinglen has been and continues to be oxygen for me. Indeed I am indebted to Ballycastle and it’s wonderful people and the amazing  people at Ballinglen from the time when I first arrived there, just after 9/11, when I was getting ready to make a significant change in my life. It has been a source of welcome, grounding and inspiration continuously since.         - Eddie Kennedy
