Champagne reception


Sir, – I am sure that we are all grateful to Noel Dorr, former secretary general of the Department of Foreign Affairs, for his “reasonably objective”, insightful and very plausible account of what might have happened at the department on the evening of June 17th, 2020 (Letters, January 19th).

Many will probably already have concluded that this was indeed how the events may have unfolded.

We should now look forward to hearing what actually did happen. – Yours, etc,



Co Meath.
