    I was giving a presentation, a few years ago in the North Mon Gaelcoláiste and I arrived too early.

    I loitered in the corridor, looking at the various photos therein.

    Beside the Secretary's Office, was an envelope and a letter in a glass frame.

    The stamp was postmarked 8:15 at the GPO in Cork on the 20th of March 1920.

    It was from the Lord Mayor, Tomás McCurtain, asking the recipient, Seán Tóibín (as Gaeilge) to call into his office that evening, he might have a bit of work for him.

    That night, McCurtain was shot dead at his house in Blackpool.

    The letter was donated to the school by Seán Tóibín's son, Niall.

    RIP.

    Tommy G eventually sorted out Flynn, Gay teed it up but it cost a lot of money to find out the truth via Mahon, Flynn and his missus still have the 50k farm/forestry

    Certainly was - a drumming genius, and a pretty hateful individual along with it. He certainly burned bright throughout his life.

    Robert Hunter, the Grateful Dead's lyricist has died. He never performed on stage but was regarded as a band member none-the-less.

    the beeb has an obit.

    "After [Jerry] Garcia died in 1995, Hunter worked with the likes of Elvis Costello, Bruce Hornsby and Bob Dylan - with whom he co-wrote the bulk of 2009's Together Through Life album.

    "He's got a way with words and I do too," Dylan said at the time . "We both write a different type of song than what passes today for songwriting."

    When the Grateful Dead were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, Hunter was included as a member of the band.

    He is still the only non-performer to garner such a honour."

    Five of the '95 Saffie RWC Winning team have now left us.

    You'd begin to wonder.

    EDIT Only four of the squad have gone, one of the coaches has also left us.
