Love/Hate actor goes back to his alma mater for Proclamation Day

By Brendan Grehan

CLONDALKIN ACTOR Philip Galvin visited his alma mater, Deansrath Community College, to take part in their Proclamation Day ceremony.

Philip was welcomed by school principal Maria Shannon and teacher Seamus Mohan. Over 300 students attended the ceremony. The former pupil raised the tricolour over the school before students read out their proclamations.

Philp told The Echo: “It went very well. It was great to be back in the school and to be involved in the ceremony. There was a great turn-out”.

It was appropriate that Philip visited his old school on Proclamation Day as on Easter Sunday he will be on our TV screens in an RTÉ production entitled 16 Letters. In the programme he will play Fr Columbus Murphy, a Capuchin priest who cared for the wounded and dying during Easter Week 1916.

The story of Fr Murphy will be one of a number told through correspondence from ordinary people, private collections and national archives to provide a “new and personal perspective” on 1916.

Prior to 16 Letters, Philip has appeared in TV shows such as Love/Hate, The Mario Rosenstock Show, Red Rock, Fair City and Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie.
