  • Fr Brownes photographs of children are among the most delightful and atmospheric of his whole oeuvre. The cover photo of this book showing Mr Kitt blowing bubbles for an excited group of young children on a street in an Irish town expresses the spirit of this delightful collection of photos by the celebrated Fr Browne and poems selected by E. E. ODonnell. They include such favourites as Im Forever Blowing Bubbles, Baidin Fheilimi, A Boys Song and Pippa Passes.Frank Browne was born in Sundays Well, Cork City, in 1880. He was a fellow-student of James Joyce at Belvedere College and at University College Dublin. In 1897 he entered the Jesuit order and was ordained a priest in 1915. He became a chaplain in the Irish Guards during World War I, going on to be the most decorated Roman Catholic padre in the British army. He spent three years in Australia recovering from mustard gas and on his return to Dublin became superior of Gardiner Street Church. In 1929 he was appointed to the Jesuit Retreats and Missions staff, a post in which he served until his death in 1960
