Ranelagh, come home


A chara, – I read with amusement Miriam Lord’s tongue-in-cheek article on Duke McDowell, the wandering canine owned by Michael McDowell and family in leafy Ranelagh (“Frances Fitzgerald’s dog rescue tweet comes back to bite her”, May 11th). However, I was taken somewhat aback by her description of Ranelagh as “in the heart of Dublin 4”.

While I am always remain open to correction, when I visited Ranelagh last month it was still in Dublin 6. – Yours, etc,


Dunboyne, Co Meath.
