Sir, – Thank goodness for the downpours. The acid in the rain is the only bit of detergent our streets have received for months. – Yours, etc,

Sir, – With all this heavy rain and the return of the traditional Irish summer, is it too early to ask for all primary schools to delay reopening until the second week in September? – Yours, etc,
