An Unsentimental People?

Suddenly, this evening, the voice of my
English teacher spoke out of the past.

My studies in language led to a robust respect
for the value that speech and writing still holds.
I am not surprised to see the Declan Kiberd had to
question Father Peter Connolly closely on what he
was saying.

The man's precision was legendary.

His ability to wind the unwary up
was less easy to pin down.
