I caught up with one of our past-pupils last week, John Carney, best known for his Academy Award winning film 'Once'. I spent a lot of his time in The Factory in Ringsend where he makes art and was more than happy to do an interview. While there he talked about topics such as his time in De La Salle, his career in both music and film and his upcoming film starring Keira Knightly and Mark Ruffalo.
Special thanks to John for giving the time to do the interview and also to Clare McGinley who was responsible for the correspondence between John and myself; without her it wouldn't have been possible.
