Book Launch

We would like to congratulat Dr Ellen Galvin, a PhD graduate of Saor-Ollscoil na hÈireann who launched her book, 'A Mystic in Search of a Unifying Truth' at the Dublin Writers Museum. Ellen’s book deals with the life of Pierre Tailbard de Chardin. Ellen embarked on a third level course in 1987, finally emerging with a PhD in Philosophy through Liberal Arts. Ellen is a perfect proponent of the ‘Lifelong learning’ philosophy of Saor-Ollscoil. Her book may be bought through Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Mystic-Search-Unifying-Truth-Teilhard-ebook/dp/B00GRGYU5W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1413416502&sr=8-1&keywords=%2FMystic-Search-Unifying-Truth.
