Christopher Nolan
Birth: Sep. 6, 1965
Death: Feb. 20, 2009

Author. Due to a lack of oxygen at birth, he was almost completely paralysed by cerebral palsy. He was educated at Central Remedial Clinic School, Mount Temple Comprehensive School and Trinity College, Dublin. His first book of poetry "Dam Burst of Dreams" was published when he was 15 but his greatest achievement was in 1988 when his semi biographical book "Under The Eye Of The Clock" won the coveted Whitbread Prize. A later work "The Banyan Tree" took him 12 years to write. He wrote by tapping a keyboard with a "unicorn stick" strapped to his head. He was also awarded the Medal of Excellence by the United Nations Society of Writers and in 1988 he was named Person of the Year in his native Ireland. The pop group "U2" who attended the same school as him, wrote a song entitled "Miracle Drug" in his honour. He died at the Beaumont Hospital in Dublin due to an ingestion of food in his airway. (bio by: bob dennis)
