3 Born September 10, 1902 in Cooraclare, County Clare, he was involved in the motor trade during the war of Independence. He enrolled in the West Clare Brigade of the IRA and served in the Flying Column; later he was decorated for his serviceses. Due to a leg injury early in life he had to cut short his schooling. Immensely popular he was seen off by an enormous crowd of well-wishers in 1926 when he left Milltown Malbay to enter the Brothers' novitiate at Kimmage. Professed in 1928 he was attached to Blackrock where he was to render sterling service in many departments as he supervised the domestic staff and assumed control of the kitchen garden. During the Emergency period he took charge of the butcher's shop and ensured a steady supply of victuals for the college kitchen. Br Bernard's limited schooling in no way inhibited him is his performance or in the respect with which he was held by all. Neither was he overawed by anyone and was noted for his quick anand witty riposted. These are legion. To mention a few: When a dispute dragged out between him and a musician in the community about the transporting of a piano after a concert, the superior, Dr J. C. McQuaid, remonstrated with him adding some words about the necessity in life for a spirit of mutual tolerance and co-operation. Bernard rejoined: "Its all very fine for you , Father, with your big words, but it is me who has to shift the piano." And when a man applied for a job at tthe College, Bernard queried: "And what sort of job would you be thinking of?" "Head gardener", was the ambitious reply, only to be countered with: "There is enough of your sort around here. What we want is someone to do the work." Bernard was a consummate teaser. He knew that his friend Br John Joe, also from Clare, had a very special devotion to the Little Flower. "She never failed me," he repeated frequently. Ten days before the Saint's feast day, Br John's treasured bicycle disappeared. "Make a novena to the Little Flower" was the helpful advice proffered by Bernard. And sure enough the bicycle reappeared in time for the Saint's feast, having been deposited at the foot of the statue of the saint. And so on. Br Bernard had a wide circle of friends who enjoyed his repartee - amoung them Lord Mountbatten, whom he met in the company of Clare-man, Chief Superintendent Liddy. Br Bernard suffered much towards the end but it was noted that he had no fear of d death which he faced with serenity as if answering a further call to duty. His personal brand of piety seemed to have been tempered by a judicious blend of traditional Clare folklore and the devotions which had been improted to Ireland from the Continent in the last century. Br Bernard McGrath died August 7, 1956 aged 53 years. McGrath, Brother Bernard-Joseph (I0341)
