Art enriches everyone, so let’s support artists

One morning in 2004, I rang the bell at Abbeville’s in Kinsealy and Charles Haughey answered the door. The house was quiet; he seemed to be alone. We sat in a small study lined with books at the front of the house. I was there to discuss a possible paper that his family had encouraged him to write. He was careful. Unlike “Garret the Good,” he snorted that he wasn’t a “historian guy.” But as a hesitant first step, he had agreed to hire someone to research some of his most important achievements.

As a way of talking, I mentioned that I had been to a cabaret show at the Focus Theater the night before; Ronnie Drew had been a surprise guest and had sung On Raglan Street in memory of Luke Kelly. “One of those coincidences that life is so full of,” Haughey said as he handed me a letter. It was from Drew thanking Haughey for attending the opening of the Luke Kelly Bridge in Fairview. The letter was dated 1985. It was at the top of a small pile on his desk.
