The Western Peo­ple has spo­ken

The Irish Times - - Comment & Letters -

Sir, – The con­de­scend­ing, pedan­tic tone of Diar­muid Fer­riter’s ar­ti­cle only serves to re­in­force the no­tion that ru­ral Ire­land needs its cham­pi­ons in ev­ery fo­rum (“Western Peo­ple’s hys­ter­i­cal re­sponse over Min­is­ters will take some beat­ing”, Opin­ion & Anal­y­sis, July 3rd).

Was he mis­tak­ing an edi­to­rial in a lo­cal pa­per that served to cap­ture the sen­ti­ment of the lo­cal peo­ple with the first draft of an aca­demic the­sis? – Yours, etc,

Dr MARTINA HE­GARTY, Louis­burgh,

Co Mayo.
