Blown out of all proportion


Sir, – Further to “NMH controversy is a legacy of the historic relationship between the Church and State” (Opinion & Analysis, June 25th), may I advise Prof Diarmaid Ferriter to consult two sources before writing something irresponsible about a living person?

He quotes June Levine’s description of myself “blowing up condoms”. June had a florid imagination, and in this case her imagination led her astray. It never happened.

For a second source, he could consult my short memoir “Something of Myself – and Others”, published by Liberties Press in 2013, in which I give my account of the event he describes. – Yours, etc,
