Mr Patrick Kavanagh was recently reported as having declared that ?¨there is no such thing as Gaelic literature?Ć. This is hard luck on the institute of Advanced Studies, who are supposed to be looking into the thing. I attended the Book Fair in the Mansion House the other evening in the hope of overhearing other similar pronouncements from the writing persons who infest such a place. I heard plenty, and have recorded it in my note-books under ?¨Stuff To Be Used If Certain People Put Their Heads Out?Ć.
Notes: from The Best of Myles

Richard Harris
