In Collection: Letters of Sean O'Casey to Mai McCarthy
Description: O'Casey offers his condolences and sympathy to McCarthy on her recent 'trouble and deep grief'. He says the scars of life are 'not pleasant, but they are honorable [sic], got in inevitable battle'. He adds that Ireland's memories are too often sad and bitter, but the 'sun isn't always setting over Boolavogue ... we need a gayer-hearted Ireland'. In the last part of the letter O'Casey seems to refer to trouble and upset over something McCarthy wrote, and he ends by saying he liked her piece called 'The Wreckers'.
