Letter to the Editor: Robert Ballagh

The Editor,
Letters Page,
The Irish Times.

Dear Editor,

That was a strange insular letter from Robert Ballagh  (10th January 2019)  with his “No Irish need apply” comment thrown in.

I presume he would not apply his observations to the London born duo of Hilton Edwards or Micheal Mc Liammoir or indeed to the American born Eamon De Valera.  I doubt too that he would apply it to Edinburg born James Connolly or  Liverpools Jim Larkin.

This Monday we will mark the centenary of The Democratic Programe agreed by the First Dail principally written by that patriotic servant of Ireland the Liverpool born Thomas Johnson.

My own Dad was born in England. I am very glad that he came to Ireland to live and dedicate his entire working life to.

We should welcome diversity while celebrating our own culture. They are not mutually exclusive.

Yours sincerely,

Dermot Lacey
