Welcome return of 'Letter' prize

Madam -- It was great to see the Letter of the Week prize back again. The only Irish newspaper to give such a prize, I think. It made it more fun and special. I was sorry to see the prize gone for a while -- but a whiskey liqueur seems nicer again than malt whiskey. I had thought over the years that Butlers Irish chocolate would be a nice alternative too. Its motto is "the purveyor of happiness". I've never known anyone to turn up their nose at really nice chocolates. I don't drink alcohol myself, but some male acquaintances have enjoyed getting a surprise bottle of Cooley's whiskey over the years. All happy recipients.
