|Letter published in the Irish Times,
Madam, - Paul Griffin's letter of March 15th entitled "The dwindling Irish
breakfast" makes depressing reading. My experience on frequent visits to
Leitrim is quite the opposite. In one B&B - Slevin's of Mohill - we had to
ask Mrs Slevin to please reduce the helpings as one could not possibly
consume all that was presented: orange juice, choice of cereals, big fry
consisting of two pieces of black pudding, two pieces of white pudding,
two rashers, four sausages, one egg, some tomato and the pièce de
résistance: two slices of finest Leitrim boxty. I suggest that Mr Griffin
visit Lovely Leitrim and enjoy meeting wonderful people, fantastic scenery
and marvellous hospitality and - lest we forget - a top class breakfast. -
Yours, etc., PETER GORDON, Beechpark Lawn, Dublin 15.
