In praise of Ruth

Sir -- I write to compliment Ruth Dudley Edwards on a most laudable article in last week's Sunday Independent, May 22, 2011.
Although at 87 years of age, and retired for many years from the ESI (Electricity Supply Industry), I well remember my occasional visits to Dublin to meet an 'opposite number' in the ESB, and, of course, he, too, would come north to visit the then Electricity Board for Northern Ireland.
Discussions centred around matters of common interest and rarely were other topics of conversation much more than platitudinous pleasantries.
