ABSTRACT
A REPORT has reached Mr Bickerstaffe that during a British television broadcast of the funeral of Seamus Heaney an unfortunate bit of subtitling took place when a reference to Éamon de Valera was rendered on the screen as 'Amen Devil Eire'. It's the sort of thing we believe Seamus would have enjoyed - and perhaps he did, seated beside James Joyce, who would also have appreciated the inadvertent Finnegans Wake-style wordplay. What Dev might have made of it is another matter entirely.
