Death brings no peace to Raheen

Paul Sheehan’s piece (“Even lust loses in this story of dirt”,October 3) prompts me to ask, if only the walls of Raheen could talk. Raheen was once the residence of the Catholic Archbishop, Daniel Mannix, and now is the Pratt’s family home. In 1960 Arthur Calwell, the Labor Party leader, failed to get the support of Mannix to end the dispute between the DLP and Labor. This reputably aroused him to say: “there’ll be no peace until the angel of death visits Raheen.” With the death of Richard Pratt in 2009 and later, there is still no peace at Raheen with or without the visits of the angel of death.
