Editing the Royal out

 

Sir, – While agreeing with Mr Holmes regarding the dropping of some “Royal” prefixes I wonder about jelly, icing, Tara, ties and host of other uses (Letters, December 7th).

On second thoughts, we are into our second century of independence, better to grow up and muck on as we are.

– Yours, etc,

JOHN K ROGERS,

Rathowen, Co Westmeath.
