Was Cicero a Fine Gaeler?

 

Sir, – Prof John Dillon (Letters, June 2nd) endorses Pat Leahy’s contention (Opinion & Analysis, May 30th) that Cicero was “a bit of a Fine Gaeler”. Considering that Cicero is often regarded as the father of the legal profession and the model for lawyers everywhere, that’s something of a backhanded compliment. – Yours, etc,

Sir, – Was Cicero a Fine Gaeler? Well, Blueshirt leader Eoin O’Duffy certainly was.

Let’s run the idea up the flag pole and see who gives the Roman salute. – Yours, etc,
