Justin Barrett's manifesto


Madam, - Judging by your account of Justin Barrett's book (The Irish Times, May 17th) Mr Barrett will give himself a great deal of needless heartache in reconstructing the Republic of Ireland as his own personal utopia.

He could simply select from one of the many repressive, one-party regimes already in existence. That would also afford him a choice of climate. - Yours, etc.,


York Hill,
