The Story of Notre Dame
Brother Aidan's Extracts


"Many an old student of Notre Dame will learn with deep regret the sad news of the death of Brother Columbkille (Thomas Carmody), who departed this life after a lingering illness on April 26. For the past 20 years his occupations in the college buildings had brought him in close contact with the Faculty and students, while his quiet, reserved manner and gentle, obliging disposition and kindness of heart had made him esteemed and respected by all. His life was that of a good religious, and was fittingly crowned by a calm and happy death." SCHOLASTIC, May 4, 1889

Brother Columbkille, C.S.C.

"Flowers? I do not know which I like best." (with a smile) "I think it is the shamrock."

-- Maurice F. Egan".
