Arts Council


Sir, - I have been congratulated so many times on my elevation to "king maker", since the interview with Patrick J. Murphy, the new chairman of the Arts Council (February 29th), that I believe it is important for the sake of the Minister for Arts, Heritage, Gaeltacht and the Islands, the Arts Council, its new chairman and myself to put on record, that I have never offered advice to the Minister on matters relating to her work. I do of course wish the new chairman every success in his new role. - Yours, etc., Ruairi O Cuiv,

Arts consultant, New Bride Street, Dublin 8.
