The Irish Times
Sir, – In response to Adrian Goodwin’s letter (December 5th) on publishing a book of his unpublished letters, everyone knows there are three simple rules to getting a letter published in The Irish Times. The first is that you have to write it. Unfortunately no one has worked out the other two rules. – Yours, etc, DERMOT O’ROURKE, Lucan, Co Dublin.
Sir, – I would gladly give Adrian Goodwin a few shillings if he would let me join him in his efforts to publish his unpublished letters to you. Perhaps we could call it Dear Sir . . . The Spiked Letters. – Yours, etc, CHRISTIE COLHOUN, Ballymena, Co Antrim.
