Bonfires on the beaches

Sir - What a sad letter from Murt Hunt, Ballyhaunis, Co. Mayo, (June 28) lamenting the bonfires of yesteryear on St John's eve.

I also lit a bonfire, not in Co Mayo, my ancestral home, but on the Costa Del Sol in Spain where the feast of San Juan (St John) is everywhere in evidence.

Huge beach bonfires and barbecues are lit all along the coast on beaches from Malaga to Marbella, starting at 11pm and continuing all through the night.
