The ‘Church of Ireland Notes’ in ‘The Irish Times’ today includes the following paragraph:

On Wednesday … Canon Patrick Comerford is the guest lecturer of the Irish Hellenic Society in the United Arts Club, Upper Fitzwilliam Street, Dublin, at 7.30pm, when he will discuss Sir Edward Law (1846–1908): the Irish Philhellene who rescued the Greek economy in the 1890s. Law is buried in Athens and is commemorated in both a street name in the Greek capital and in a memorial plaque in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin.
