Duff's extreme litany
Sir -- I am writing regarding the article headed 'Biography on Frank Duff misses point', written by John-Paul McCarthy (Sunday Independent July 3, 2011).
I was not surprised to read of Mr Duff's hypocritical approach to Protestant ministers. I travelled to Thailand in 1977 on holidays to visit one of my sisters who was living there at the time. In an effort to make the long distance worthwhile, I decided to carry out research into the leprosy colonies in Thailand.
The result of my research made me decide to take part in a number of events before I left for Thailand so as to raise much-needed funds to help those who tirelessly carry out tremendous work with leprosy patients throughout the world, including Thailand.
