Anne Thrope tale continues

9th December 2011 at 00:00

I read the letter in TESS (25 November) relating to Ms Anne Thrope and was outraged. This lady (Ms Thrope) needs our support. It is her column that makes the TESS bearable. I feel that the writer of the letter misses the point. Presumably, they would be reluctant to read a writer of some distinction - based on his informative book outlining the farming of Irish babies for consumption.

Three cheers for Ms Thrope.
