Five Questions with Pat Byrne? Good times.
It is with a great sigh of regret that we acknowledge the sad fact that Pat is retiring--has, technically, retired as of this past December. We will miss his wit, his erudition, his great love for literature and folklore, for music and all things Newfoundland, and perhaps above all his unfailing good humour and common sense.
If you are currently in St. John's, we invite you to come out for A Pint for Pat tomorrow (Thursday, March 29) at Bitters Pub, located in Feild Hall (216 Prince Philip Dr.). Come out, have pint for (and with) Pat, and celebrate his long and distinguished career with the English Department.
No speeches allowed.
