St Laurence O’Toole

Published in Issue 5 (September/October 2018), Letters, Volume 26

Sir,—In your last issue (HI 26.5, July/August 2018), your feature on ‘The curse of St Laurence O’Toole’ by Dr Jesse Harrington omitted an important factor with wide implications. The sister of St Laurence O’Toole, Mór O’Toole, was married to the then powerful king of Leinster and Uí Chennseligh, Diarmuid Mac Murrough.—Yours etc.,

NICHOLAS FURLONG, FRSAI
