Letter from P.T. Keohane to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from 'K.' (P.T.Keohane), Dublin, to Hagan. Expressing certain misgivings about changes to take place [in the Catholic Bulletin] which were decided together with Cashel � it will give both of them more freedom in expressing opinions; Tuam on the other hand is a poet and is treated accordingly. Commenting that the results from the municipal elections are splendid and that they passed off very quietly - the foreign press must have been disappointed not having seen 'Irish people [at] each other's throats'. The one Unionist in Dublin, McCarthy, gained votes because people mistook him for one of their own. Judging that the towns have been the weakest link in the Sinn Fein chain- the district and county council elections will bring a 'clear sweep of the old gang'. 'Brosnan' (O'Flanagan) is very pleased as are all. Brief comment on Fr.[Devine] who writes very harmlessly � 'he is like the R.I.C. fairly well confined these times'.
