IT is hardly possible to exaggerate the importance of the publication of the 1641 Depositions in Trinity College Library, hidden from view (in the best Trinity manner) for well over three centuries.

THE issue of university fees ought not to be determined in isolation from student grants.
Fri, 05 Nov, 2010
AS someone who has been privileged to lecture in Trinity College Dublin for 42 years, I simply fail to recognise Myles Duffy’s description of our system of electing a provost as having “the hallmarks of an elite gentleman’s club” (Letters, October 18).
Wed, 03 Nov, 2010

I WAS interested in the letter from Dr Pat Walsh (April 26) on the justification – or lack of it – for the invasion of Gallipoli by the British and French in 1915.

NO one has done more in the past decade or so to give meaning and definition to our continued quest for peace and reconciliation on the island of Ireland than President Mary McAleese in her two terms of office, whether in greeting the English rugby team at Croke Park or Lansdowne Road or in sharing communion with communicants of the Church of Ireland in St Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin.

AMID all the well-deserved congratulations for our magnificent rugby players (and with the prospect of a great day for Leinster and Munster in Croke Park to come) we ought not to overlook the succession of excellent performances by our cricketers culminating in the recent six-wicket victory over Holland, which has assured qualification for the World Cup.

WE all dislike the fact that the banks have a full Government guarantee. It seems curious that at the same time the HSE thinks the warranty has ran out on our elderly people.
