SF leader in the picture


Sir, – I refer to the concerns expressed by a letter writer (June 1st) regarding the constant appearance of the president of Sinn Féin in The Irish Times.

As a former member of the same party (and there are quite a few of us), I can heartily assure your correspondent that he has nothing to fear from Sinn Féin.

Sure it is all ready for government with Fine Gael! – Yours, etc,



Dublin 22.

Sir, – Might all those recent photos of the ubiquitous Mary Lou McDonald in your august publication signify the calling of a snap election? – Yours, etc,


Dalkey, Co Dublin.
