Extract from a Letter Received by Keohane forwarded to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Typescript extract 'from a letter received by Sister K.' [P.J. Keohane] from [...], forwarded by [...] to (Hagan); with information [regarding the vacant see of Galway]. While the writer's own favourite refused to have his name put forward [identified in brackets as the Vicar General], a certain crowd supports 'the Ex-Roman I spoke of' [...] but their Roman friend [Hagan] is strongly mentioned and will find supporters. The writer himself will vote for him, but the Ex- Roman has done his best to run him down, citing instances of their shared student time together, but not being able to give evidence. Also stating that the former bishop's nephew [J. O'Dea] is also for [Hagan] and keen to 'beat' the others. The person writing to Keohane also remarks that the same correspondent thought [Hagan] would have had more support had they known he would accept; if he did not then Clonfert is preferable despite all. (Marked in pencil in unidentified hand, asking for acknowledgement; mentioning 'Brewery' [E.R. Morrissey.])
