Funeral of Chris Wall


Sir, – Regarding Pat Leahy’s article mentioning the funeral of my brother Chris Wall (“Is a half-embrace at a funeral a sign that Sinn Féin and Fianna Fáil will cosy up together?”, Opinion & Analysis, January 8th), for the record, Mary Lou McDonald was there as a neighbour and Bertie Ahern as a long-time friend.

My brother’s funeral was not the forum for any political purpose. – Yours, etc,



Dublin 6W.
