On the death of Joe Stanley in 1950 among the many letters of condolences received was a voice from the distant past March 1916 - Seamas O Neill the man who wrote the "offending" article in An Gael in March 1916 that led to the first British raid and closure of the Gaelic Press.

"Oh what it is to be young" - he laments in his letter of condolence to Annie Stanley remarking that he had never met her but had met Maire Nic Siubhlaigh in 1917.
