Letter from Archbishop Edward Byrne to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from Archbishop Edward Byrne, Primate of Ireland, Archbishop's House, Dublin, to (Hagan). Asking to obtain faculties for him to be able to make appointments to vacant benefices; commenting on Monsignor Fitzpatrick's praiseworthy decision to retire from St. Kevin's. Enclosing a terna presenting three nominees for that parish in case the Dataria refuses faculties; recommending Fr. Lockhart out of the three. Concerning the College, stating that the bishops intended Sbarretti to use their letter as he saw fit to gain their end. Making his point strongly that were Irish property to pass out of Irish hands, of an institution regarded as a national heritage, then the prestige of the Holy See and religion itself would suffer in the country. It is to be hoped that the rector as representative of both the bishops and the cardinal protector would be the one to draw up the plans for reconstruction on the Coelian Hill. Adding that he did not mention the Tivoli removal scheme to the bishops to bide his time.
