Tibb’s the Season


Sir, – Thanks to Frank McNally (“Tibb’s the Season – Frank McNally on the patron saint of things that never happen”, An Irishman’s Diary, December 23rd) for his interesting piece on Tibb’s Eve. I guess we’ll have to wait till the cows come home or till hell freezes over to restore St Tibb to her rightful place among the exalted. Reminds me of the ubiquitous hire-purchase system in the old days, known as the “never-never”. – Yours, etc,


Dún Laoghaire,
