Who is John Digney?
I was born in 1968 in the townland of Tyrella, in Northern Ireland (about
30miles from Belfast). I am led to believe that Tyrella comes from the old Irish
words – TÃr & Eile and translate as ‘other land’ or ‘other world’. Anyone
acquainted with Celtic Mythology should be familiar with the most famous
‘otherworld’, TÃr na nÃ“g or ‘The land of the young’. I when I was a kid I
believed there was some relevance in this and being eternally young I now know
what that is.
I must admit that I wasn’t the world's most enthusiastic student, but did
make a deal with myself that I would stay in education as long as the ‘system’
allowed. So, in 1987 I began my third level education. Began in the University
of Ulster – I was a student there from 1987 until 1991, studying Psychology.
Over the last number of years I have been a student at a number of colleges and
universities, including University College Dublin, University of Limerick,
Dublin Institute of Technology and Dundalk Institute of Technology, where I have
completed various third level courses including diplomas in Management Studies,
Training and Education, a Masters degree in Project Management, another in
Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis and am currently undertaking a PhD in Child &
Youth Care. I am hoping the ‘system’ will have had enough of me very soon.
I have worked in Residential Care for almost 18 years. I was lucky to spend
nine and a half years ‘cutting my teeth’ in Oberstown Boys School and work with
an extraordinary team of professional people. I left there to take on a
supervisory position with the Health Board, managing a ‘controlled therapeutic
unit’ for extremely challenging kids. My next move was to a ‘High Support’
service, a new concept in Ireland (and if we’re honest, one which is still being
defined). I have been Deputy Director in this service for just over 7 years now.
