Ó Ceallaigh, Cait
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from Cait Bean Seán T. (Ó Ceallaigh), [Tamcoole], to Hagan. Stating that they are in good humour mostly because 'the press and its general mean- ness' have been discomfited; the fourth gained in the elections cannot be the reason although they did very well, considering the lack of help. The situation is of interest in that the government's ministers came out with huge polls, but so did their own 'gunmen (and) column leaders and "destructionists"'; listing the winners: could they assemble them in the Chamber it would be a wonderful collection. Bob Lambert's win in Wexford was hailed by the press as 'Dr. Ryan reappears'. Not a dozen of those elected can actually appear. DeValera, in Arbour Hill, cannot even write a letter to his wife, and meanwhile Italy receives Cosgrave, the man 'that is mean enough to go register his nation as a vassal state in the League of Nations- if that assembly has any value or dignity'. Strongly disparaging remarks about 'that dirty old humbug MacSweeney'. The farmers begin to hope that prices will rise with a new war. She is sorry Hagan will not be able to come this year.
