Make Pierre's a double whiskey

Sir -- As an avid reader of your paper over many years, I must confess that this is the first time I have desecrated your letters page but sacre bleu please allow moi to explain: it is all because of last Sunday's (September 4) Letter of the Week by the amazing Frenchman Pierre Benitot. "Having just spent a few days in Ireland" and in such a short space of time he has penned the funniest letter I have ever read in this newspaper, which I have cut out for posterity. Could I suggest others do the same, and may I further suggest a double ration of Tyrconnell for Pierre.

N Magnier,
