Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Newspaper cutting from [Irish Times, 24 March 1929] containing 'Letter to the Editor' from Dudley Fletcher, St. Laserian's, Old Leighlin, dated 23 March, 'Catholic Emancipation'. (See Ó Ceallaigh's promise of this item above.) Writer setting out to complement the many recent publications about Catholic Emancipation that give only one side of the picture. Referring to the series of articles 'Wine from the Royal Pope' in the Catholic Bulletin for more recent evidence of a Roman bishop-king extending his supremacy over subjects of kingdoms such as England. Describing atmosphere of fear, as exaggerated as the fear of German spies in the Great War, that resulted in the penal laws. When Popes ceased to interfere in the temporal affairs of the State it was decided not to punish peaceful and loyal Catholics for events before their time. Invoking Italy's recent actions along the same lines; calling all churches to restrict themselves to proclaiming the Gospel. [post-24 March 1929]
