Sir,—In my review of the late Donnchadh Ó Corráin’s Clavis Litterarum Hibernensium (HI 27.3, May/June 2019) I accidentally attributed the beautiful one-verse poem Isan bhFrainc to the Franciscan poet Pilib Bocht Ó Huiginn, when in fact it was composed by his Dominican contemporary Pádraigín Haicéad. I would ask your readers to treat the lapse as Haicéad himself recommended to one of his critics: Léigh thort nó sméid ar gach cam do-chír (‘Let pass or smile at any fault you find’).—Yours etc.,
