Full credit to the Glasnevin Trust

Sir -- I can never understand how nearly every time the grave of General Michael Collins gets mentioned in the media, George McCullough, chief executive of the Glasnevin Trust, seems to take it so personally, as if any comments are directed at him or are insinuating negligence on the part of the trust. This could not be further from the truth.

In his letter (January 8), he emphasises: "The care and maintenance of the grave is undertaken by the Glasnevin Trust."

In fairness, the trust has made a fine job of cleaning up the cemetery and making it the fine tourist attraction it is today.
