Irish Poet John O'Donohue Dead at 52

Irish poet and philosopher John is laid to rest in Fanore, Co Clare, Ireland. O'Donohue was a native Irish speaker, a former priest, and author of books that provided sustenance for many souls hungering for connection in a shallow, narcissistic world — a world full of what called the 'religion of rush.' He died suddenly on Jan. 4, near Avignon, France. He was 52.
