MOLLOY RESIGNATION

 

CIARAN BYRNE,

Sir, - While I was sad to hear of the resignation of Bobby Molloy after nearly 40 years in public life, I was heartened by the long overdue re-emergence of the moral high ground in Irish politics. Bobby Molloy may stand proud, and perhaps others should take note. - Yours, etc.,

Sir, - I would like to congratulate the Tánaiste for posturing at length in yesterday's Irish Times on the need for adherence to civic values and high standards in society; this on the very day after her solid defence of Bobby Molloy's apparent intervention in a highly sensitive rape case. The irony is surreal. - Yours, etc.,
