Dr Kevin McCarthy UCC: clarification

Published 25/09/2015

Since you published a letter from a Dr Kevin McCarthy, of Kinsale, Co Cork, on the subject of Auschwitz (WriteBack, September 16) there has been a case of mistaken identity.

The writer is not the Dr Kevin McCarthy who works in University College Cork (UCC). The UCC's Dr Kevin McCarthy would appreciate it if people would not write to him or email him about Auschwitz.

It is understandable that there has been some confusion over two identical names being attributed to people in the same region.

However, to reiterate, Dr Kevin McCarthy of University College Cork did not write or submit the letter published in the Belfast Telegraph on September 16.
