Bridge honour for Tony Gregory would be a fitting tribute
• In relation to the naming of the new Liffey bridge, Noel Gregory (Letters, June 4) would like to toss the name of his brother Tony into the ring. This is a great idea -- after all, Tony was the champion of the people and a true Dubliner.
Many remember Tony Gregory for not wearing a tie to the Dail, and this was a big thing at the time. It was as if he was a rebellious teenager who defied these silly Dail rules -- and at the time it took great courage to do so.
If I remember correctly, he said many people could not afford to buy a tie, so being a compassionate man he joined with them and never wore one. This may seem crazy to today's generation, that men could not afford a tie -- and it was not so long ago either.
