Dr. John Feehan is a scientist working in the fields of geology and botany. . While still a student he discovered the petrified remains of the earliest land plant in the world, dating back to 425 million years ago. Since then he has published authoritative studies on the bogs of Ireland, farming in Ireland, grasses in Ireland, the geology of Laois and Offaly and a multitude of other texts. His interest on the relationship of science and religion is found in his 2010 book, The Singing Heart of the World

For John Feehan, the cutting edge of rigorous scientific analysis opens up a world of wonder, enchantment and religious experience. In a lecture published in 2015, he spoke of a presence “encoded in the reality of the world”. “The human spirit, undistracted, attentive in the midst of all these  other creatures …is aware of a presence” which “is not to be named, is beyond name.”

His deep faith combined with a love of the landscape underpin his commitment to environmental issues.
