Fiesta in Pamplona


Madam, - I think you owe your readers an apology for your enthusiastic promotion of bullfighting in your Magazine of July 12th. Describing the notorious Pamplona fiesta you inform us that "the highlight is the encierro, or running of the bulls", and that "equally good fun is. . .a succession of bullfights and fireworks that take place in Vitoria. . ."

It is lamentable that an influential newspaper should endorse this sadistic and cruel "sport". - Yours, etc.,

RUARC GAHAN, Knocknaboley, Hollywood, Co Wicklow.
