President of Ireland[edit]

Hi Snappy. You reverted my addition of "(Carroll O'Daly)" with the question "Was he known by that name?" Well, although not obvious the names Cearbhall Ó Dálaigh and Carroll O'Daly (and their pronunciation) are the same, but the spelling "Carroll O'Daly" was fairly standard during most of his life-time and is used in some reliable sources. As it happens, it's also useful because most people outside Ireland wouldn't know how to pronounce the Gaelic spelling of "Cearbhall" and might even have a little trouble with "Ó Dálaigh".

  1. Survey of Current Affairs (1974), p. 471: "lRlSH REPUBLlC: NEW PRESlDENT It was announced on 29 November that Mr Carroll O'Daly was to be the fifth President of the Republic of Ireland. The inauguration is scheduled to take place on 20 December."
  2. Western Europe 2003 (2002, ISBN 1857431529), p. 330: "Childers died while in office; he was succeeded by Carroll O'Daly, an all-party nomination."

Faith of Michael Collins[edit]

Hi Snappy. Thank you for your contribution on MC. Was he a religious man. I was surprised about the omission of his spiritual life.

Request for civil behaviour[edit]

Your recent behaviour in the Ireland project falls far short of the requirement for civility. The comments were rude to one editor and unambiguously insulting in my case. Whatever history that may have passed between us, that does not give you the right to go galumphing around the place with impunity. I would appreciate it if your would acknowledge (1) that your recent behaviour was uncivil, (2) that you regret the hurt caused and (3) that you promise not to engage in such behaviour in the future.

More than 48 hours has elapsed since this note was posted. In that time, you have made many edits so its presence cannot have escaped your notice. It's fair to conclude that you do not wish to engage in this part of the mandated dispute resolution process. I will therefore take it to the next stage.

@Laurel Lodged: I was attempting a joke about my user name. If I insulted you, then I apologise. I won't be making any such remarks in the future. Snappy (talk) 19:12, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
