IN response to Jim Boylan ('Ahern could have acted over rapist', Letters, August 13), I respectfully submit that while we are on the subject of time travel, we wonder if Mr Boylan would also like to relive other such important moments of Irish history such as Italia '90 and the Pope's visit of 1979.

Notwithstanding Boylan's assertion that such journeys would require "foresight, will, decisiveness, competence and caring attitude", the introduction of retrospective legislation, both in practice and in principle, is as impossible as time travel itself.
