  1. Hello,
    I’ve stumbled across an August, 2012 essay on your site by Christopher Fitz-Simon entitled “CARLETON ON THE STAGE”. I’m afraid I can’t work out how to comment on the paper directly but in it Christopher makes mention of a play called “The Shamrock and the Rose” by Walter Reynolds. Walter is both a subject dear to me and my own ancestor. It sounds like Christopher may have found a copy of the script – if so I am hoping that he could get in touch with me.
    Best regards,

    1. I will reply directly to you. I understand that the manuscript is in the British Library in London, according to Christopher’s research.
