Dr Patrick McCartan and Diarmuid Lynch

Published in 20th-century / Contemporary History, Issue 3 (May/Jun 2008), Letters, Letters, Volume 16

Sir,

—In the lead photo (p. 22) of Michael Doorley’s article on ‘The Friends of Irish Freedom’ (HI 16.1, Jan./Feb. 2008), the figure to Dev’s immediate left is in fact Dr Patrick McCartan (and not FOIF secretary Diarmuid Lynch, as captioned). I should know—he was my godfather.

—Yours etc.,
MAIRTÍN McCULLOUGH
