The Cavan paper, the Anglo Celt has two pieces on Richard Hayward, covering a full page. The emphasis is, unsurprisingly of Hayward’s writings on Cavan.
However, of that paper Hayward wrote:
“The only bad thing I know about that paper is the execrable local pronunciation of the work ‘Celt’ with a soft C. It does violence to my ear every time a Cavan man uses such an un-Irish sound”.
