Bacik’s victory

 

Sir, – “Ireland has finally caught up with Ivana Bacik” (Una Mullally, Opinion & Analysis, July 12th). One hundred years on from independence, may I be the first to congratulate the nation on having finally built an Ireland fit for Ivana Bacik to live in? – Yours, etc,

Sir, – On June 21st, having reviewed the candidates, I placed a modest bet in my local bookies on Ivana Bacik to win, and was given what were then generous odds. So, last Sunday, my wife and I enjoyed an excellent takeaway lunch on a portion of my winnings. Thanks Ivana. – Yours, etc,
