Voting in the referendums


Sir, – Thank goodness it’s over at last. To paraphrase Winston Churchill: “Never in the history of Letters to the Editor has so much hot ink been expended by so many on so little”.

Can we have our paper back now and once more enjoy the myriad opinions of its diverse readership on a variety of topics? – Yours,etc,

Glasnevin, Dublin 9.

Sir, – I have just returned from the very satisfying experience of voting to abolish the Seanad.

Shortly, Naas Town Council, the local authority covering the area where I live in, will also be abolished.

It seems the only further actions necessary to facilitate the emergence of democratic representation of the people and effective government institutions is the abolition of Kildare County Council and Dáil Eireann. – Yours, etc,


Caragh Green,


Co Kildare.
