Information Evening on Substance Misuse
John Lonergan, Governor of Mountjoy Prison, spoke to a large attendance of well over one hundred people at an 'Information evening of Substance Misuse' in the Patrician Presentation Secondary School on 19th May 2004. The following was one of the five documents he quoted from:

Good Example

I'd rather see a lesson
Than to hear one any day,
I'd rather you'd walk with me
Than to mearly show the way.

The eye's a better teacher
And more willing than the ear,
And counsel is confusing
But examples always clear.

The best of all the teachers
Are the. ones who live the creed,
To see good and put into action
is what everybody needs.

I soon can learn to do it
If you let me see it done,
I can see your hand in action
But your tongue too fast may run.

And the counsel you are giving
May be very fine and true,
But I'd rather get my lesson
By observing what you do.
