Letter from James O'Dea to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from James O'Dea, Mount St. Mary’s, Galway, to Hagan. Breaking down the sum of £ 4,388- 6-0, contributions as agreed from the dioceses towards the new College. All parishes were to contribute £10; the parish of Rathlin Island apparently never contributes to parochial collections. Then recommending a brilliant student, Mr. O'Boyle, now in Maynooth, for a post-graduate burse; asking Hagan to persuade the bishops. Observing that 'whatever is wrong with Maynooth, its best men go to seed once they leave the College. If we had the application of the foreigners we could teach the world'. (Obverse with handwritten notes by [Curran] on the diocesan contributions.)
