Discovery . . . Typical . . . Tasteful idea . . . Death
Further to Allison Bray's report on the restoration of the scagliola tabletop ('Rare antique table gets a makeover', Irish Independent, January 27), I would like to add that I discovered the elaborate console base in a store of the Office of Public Works last year, where it had lain forgotten and unidentified for decades. The discovery was published in 'Country Life' magazine on June 29, 2009.
- I read with interest that the Civil Service is going on a 'go slow', not answering the phones in the morning and so on.
No change there then!
