Letter from Peter Doyle to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Typescript letter from Peter Doyle P.P., Parochial House, Mooncoin, County Waterford, to (Hagan), having had no news for a long time. Commenting on their cold and long winter, delaying agriculture. In politics, the 'doctrine' of the steppingstones towards a republic has by now been shamelessly abandoned 'and unity with the English Commonwealth of Nations is openly proclaimed by our wretched Government...' De Valera's views are not optimistic, thinking that 'not in our time will we again occupy the position we had gainedin 1921. Then asking to receive kindly an arts teacher who will travel from New South Wales to Rome; explaining his connection with the Brigidines in Ireland. Then observing that Mussolini's claim, as cast into his new programme, 'is nothing short of the most sweeping Erastianism so often condemned by the Church'- it would mean a complete break with the Vatican.
