Pontifical Irish College
Ó Ceallaigh, Cait
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from Cáit bean Seán T. (Ó Ceallaigh), 91 Stephen's Green (Dublin), to Hagan. Wondering how Dr. Murphy's appeal to the Pope went; he must know that his papers were raided and seized. Mentioning Miss Taaffe's arrest as another example of high-handed justice. 'I don't know whether this deadly duel between the Republicans (and) the Free Staters is to be long or short.' The government at least acts optimistic; (Commander-in-Chief) told Mrs. O'Malley in Galway that she was not to count on a settlement. She herself had notes from their government, none pessimistic- 'deV[alera]'s chief wail was to have Seán T. free!' Fr. P.B.[rowne] is also more than hopeful. However, operationally they are not doing so well; two column boys were killed in action. A farewell letter from O'Malley was published in Poblacht. The shop of the McCulloughs – always turning their coats, foolishly – was blown up. Seán asks for Hagan often; his attempt to go on parole, making peace, failed for the conditions on the 'peace' to be brokered. Mc[Esmond]'s work in Rome promises to be a success. Dr. McCartan [demonstrated the propaganda work going on in the States]; the company was depressed over Fr. Magennis writing so much on Liam Mellowes and nothing on Hales and the other side. Believes that Irish America is theirs. Their biggest problem is a government that does not care about public approval or support: 'it will go on for a long time "regardless" even when it comes to be detested'.
