This week I am chatting with Father Des Wilson, who is 93 years of age, and spent nearly his entire life serving the people of West Belfast and Ballymurphy through some of the darkest times Ireland has ever seen. He is particularly known for his work in setting up Springhill Community house 'as a place for discussion and learning, where people could work and enjoy themselves in freedom.'
