“It was said that his decision to have his papers burnt was a defence against biographers. He had read a life of one of the archbishops of Dublin, Dr William Walsh, and thought it a travesty of the man he had known. No one would do that to him; no one would analyse the mind and heart of Daniel Mannix. It would be bad enough if they got it wrong. And for him, it might have been almost as bad if they got it right.”
Brenda Niall, Mannix

“IT TOOK THREE days to burn his private papers, so the legend has it.”
Brenda Niall, Mannix

“We know almost nothing about Daniel’s feeling for his parents. To read that he wept uncontrollably at his father’s funeral in May 1910 is startling, not just because it is the only testimony to their attachment, but because Daniel was then well on in his forties and his usual style was so restrained.1”
Brenda Niall, Mannix
