I MET Brian Mullins for the first time nearly 50 years ago when I enrolled as a third level student in Thomond College, then known as the National College of Physical Education (NCPE).

Together with Galway’s John Tobin, Fran Ryder from Dublin, Hugo Clerkin (Monaghan), Dick Dunne (Laois) and Ted Owens (Cork), Brian was among the first cohort of students accepted into the new college.
