Sir, – Regarding Niall Ginty’s request for a health warning to accompany the slogan “You’ll never beat the Irish” (June 12th): he can rest assured – terms and conditions apply. – Yours, etc,

Sir, – In his column of April 17th, Fintan O’Toole railed against a major character defect of the Irish: “The profoundly fatalistic mentality of those who shrug off every misfortune with the consolation that they could be worse”.

If he’s following the European championships he’ll realise that Irish football supporters haven’t been taking him too seriously. Thank God for that! – Yours, etc,
