Dame Edna O’Brien

 

Sir, – The sentence which saddens me most about this diatribe (“O’Brien should not have accepted this tainted honour”, Opinion & Analysis, April 14th) is the very last sentence which says: “Emer Martin is a Dubliner and a writer”. Us Dubliners used to be known for our generosity of spirit. – Yours, etc,
