Signed, & With A.L.s. from Author [De Blacam, Aodh] Roddy the Rover and his Aunt Louisa. By Roddy [pseudo. of Aodh de Blacam], short pieces mostly reprinted from his Irish Press column for young people. D. 1933, worn d.w. Signed by Author on t.p., inscribed on f.f.e.p. to Maelbheannachta ? D laigh. ALs from author to Maelbheannachta (14.vi.37) taped in, acknowledging criticism of his book Holy Romans. ‘The passage you disliked is a piece of broad drollery (from life) which I ought not to have written in a way that could be misunderstood, and there is a good deal of bitterness in the book which is much worse.’ ‘Maelbheannachta’ may be one of Cearbhall ? Dalaigh’s siblings, several of whom worked at the Irish Press.
