Letter from Eric Fair to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from Eric Fair, Coláiste Sheosaimh 1928 Naomhtha, Páirc Ghearrbhaile, Ballinasloe (County Galway), to Hagan, in thanks for his reference; enclosing the printed application (not extant) as sent to Maynooth. His bishop will talk to the others in Fair's favour. Listing his referees; his prizes in Irish from Galway will hardly help in this matter; other individuals ready to help. Recommending the two Clonfert students to go to Rome, but especially John Joe Quinn. Regretting he cannot be at the former students' reunion in Dublin. The bishop is making some items left by the late Fr. Joe Fahy the nucleus of a diocesan archives; they include some 18th-century penal day-artefacts. Fair presently teaches his subjects through Irish, having to make his own textbooks. Then adding a request on behalf of Mago O'Donnell, a former Roman student who left with doubts about his vocation: with a hope for a good teaching post, encouraging Hagan to give him a good testimonial.
