from Ethel Mannin to Aida MacGonigal and others,
|Main Creator:||Mannin, Ethel, 1900-1984|
|Citation:||National Library of Ireland. Department of Manuscripts|
The letters relate to the sale by Mannin of her cottage at Island View Cottage, at Faul, Clifden, Connemara, in the late 1960s. The house was built by Lady Butler, the artist, owner of Islandview House, for her coachman Peter Carberry and his wife Georgina, her cook. The cottage was used by Miss Mannin when she was writing the fictional account of the life of Father John Sullivan, Late Have I loved Thee. The letters give an account of the details of the handing over of the cottage to the MacGonigals, and reveal tensions between Ethel Mannin and her old neighbours in Faul.
