Bishops Edward Daly and James Mehaffey
This is the second time the two retired bishops of the Catholic and Anglican churches of Derry/Londonderry visited the Bucknell class. The beginning gives personal histories of each man. Then they give an important account of the Inner City Trust, a project they jointly worked on with local business leaders, especially Paddy Doherty. The project used youth apprenticeships to re-build the walled city in central Derry. Then follow a variety of personal reflections on playing important roles as religious leaders and ministering to parishioners during the Troubles.
The first half hour or so of the tape presents the Bishops' experience creating the Inner City Trust, working with Paddy Doherty, and rebuilding center city Derry.
