Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from Áine b.[ean] É. [amoinn] Ceannt, (Mrs. Anne Kent), 44 Oakley Road, Ranelagh, Dublin, to Hagan, introducing herself as the widow of Éamonn Kent – who had the honour to play the Irish war pipes in the Vatican in 1908 for Pope Pius's jubilee – and as the great-grand-niece of Dr. Kirby. Enclosing a typescript petition signed by herself, Maud Gonne MacBride, and Neans b.[ean] [é.] Uí Rathghaille (Mrs. Nancy O'Rahilly). Appealing to Hagan to use his influence for Fr. Sweetman's school, Mount Saint Benedict, Gorey, where their sons are presently educated. 'Being as we are the widows of three of the men who offered up their lives for their country at Easter 1916 we desire nothing better than that our sons should be so educated as to grow up worthy of the sacrifice of their fathers.' Áine Ceannt adds that in addition to the unrivalled Irish atmosphere at the school it also has the advantage that the intermediate system of education is not followed.
