Side note

 

A chara, – I always look forward to the Church of Ireland Notes every Saturday, but I got a nasty jolt when I saw the words “British Isles” (October 31st). The writer must not be aware that that usage is long outdated, except perhaps with some oldies who hanker after the British Empire. – Yours, etc,
