Richard Mc Sweeney
Risteárd Mac Suibhne; Richard Ériugena: Richard of Éire modestly puts himself out there as a self-designated Planet Earth philosopher of the natural kind; a self-originator who enjoys expressing his ideas and insights: his philosophical fiction in a charmingly personal prose-poetic style. He is happily married to Lee Sung-ja of Seoul, Republic of Korea. They live on the beautiful isle of Éire - Ireland. Their son and daughter are also happily married and have children of their own. The closing two decades of the last century saw him teaching English Language and Literature and studying philosophy in the Far East and the Middle East. He has a Masters in Chinese Taoist Philosophy (Lao-Tzu & Chuang-Tzu) from Seoul National University which he gained through the mediums of Korean and Classical Chinese. He was also enrolled in the PhD programme for two years in the same department at SNU. He has a BA in Korean Language & Literature from Kyunggi University in Seoul and a Diploma in Philosophy & Arts from Saint Patrick’s College in Maynooth, County Kildare. The latter he gained while being (for six years) a Catholic seminarian for the priesthood with the Missionary Society of St. Columban based in Dalgan Park, Navan, County Meath in Ireland. He has been constantly practicing the art of expressing himself in written form ever since returning to Ireland in June 2001. To date he has published seventeen books: QUO VADIS 19 being his most recent which he brought out in October 2022.
