Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from [P.J. Keohane], Dublin, to Hagan. Asking to give Fr. Magennis 'a quadruple handshake' for 'the desperate fight he has been waging for us in those intervening years' and in adverse circumstances; forgiving him for not obtaining 'that Freemason book' he promised and asking for his own; they will reach an agreement over copyright. Repeating that [the Archbishop of] Cashel is 'as true as steel', and that he is fully aware of the activities of Canon W. [Waters] and Co. which will go to Hagan's credit; Canon Lyons, Ardee, is to be the cardinal's nominee- offering judgement on his character- but assuring Hagan of his belief that the final decision will be unanimous. Asking to give Dr. 'O'G.' [O'Gorman] all facilities needed. Stating that Monsignor O'R [O'Riordan's] last work 'is a decided hit' and will be to the credit of the B. [Catholic Bulletin] which he hopes will be distribute abroad again. Expressing himself relieved over his remarks about 'these Ladies' in Kiltimagh; they are determined to go ahead- Fr. 'A.' [Albert] called, and Keohane promises to send Hagan a copy of letters. Having met Fr. Dargan, he found him quiet and unassuming and not likely to give a false impression; a Fr. MacSweeny is said to have talked negatively about the diet that was supplied in his time; asking to take the report with reserve. On the matter of 'Fr. M' asking for a favour for old Fr. McCarthy, Keohane advises to do what he can for the latter who used to be an army chaplain � he belongs to 'the old shoneen school'. Having received a letter from 'Canon C.' he states that his activities will have to be restrained.
