Sir,—In your ‘On this day’ column (HI 19.2, March/April 2011) it was stated that James Stephens, the founder of the Irish Republican Brotherhood, died on 29 April 1901. In fact he died on 29 March 1901. At his funeral on 31 March 1901, my great-grandfather James Bermingham was one of the coffin-bearers, along with Michael Davitt, C.G. Doran, Michael Lambert, William Brophy and William Hickey.—Yours etc.,
PATRICK BERMINGHAM
