    Dear editor,

    Rob Brennan's article on the 2nd generation irish experience was a very vivid and accurate depiction of my life as a London Irish boy and man. I have always felt I never quite belonged in either community but the emotional pull has always be towards Ireland. At the same time working in England the accent, the dress and other cultural experience were British. But the literature and arts were irish dominated for me. I proudly read Behan,Joyce, Yeats and others. I go to the theatre to watch Beckett and Martin McDonagh. The cinema to watch all the great actors from Maureen o'Hara through to Colin Farrell. But equally I enjoy the work of all great artists. Though the real passion is there for my Irish heroes.
