The following letter was sent to Mr. J. Mulholland of Madden & Finucane, Solicitors, 36 Victoria Square, Belfast by Brendan N. Lynn of Lynn, Drake & Co Chartered Accountants on April 12th 1996.
To Whom It May Concern.
I, Brendan N Lynn, hereby state that I have known Eileen Wright, presently of 4 Norwood Gardens, Belfast BT4 2DX for a period of some ten years.
Although almost 74 years of age Eileen remains very fit and active. She thinks with an enviable clarity and expresses herself in an intelligent and articulate manner.
I am aware that she has looked after her 68 year old mentally handicapped brother for some twenty years and despite this arduous responsibility remains a very cheerful person.
I would be delighted to speak personally on Eileen's behalf if the occasion arose. I can be contacted at the above address.

Dear Mr Mulholland
RE: MRS EILEEN WRIGHT/MR FREDERICK ANDREWS
4 NORWOOD GARDENS, BELFAST BT4 2DK
Mrs Eileen Wright has been known to me for twenty years and has been caring for her brother Mr Frederick Andrews for most of that time and since before their mother died.
She is dedicated to his welfare and is a very efficient and attentive carer.
I deem her to be competent to handle his affairs with attention and integrity and commend her to you.

The following letter was sent to me by Mr. Gerry Rice, 11 Newcastle Road, Ballynahinch, Co. Down. BT24 8NE.
To Whom It May Concern.
I met Mrs. Eileen Wright almost 20 years ago at a public meeting which was attended by people who had been suffering injustice at the hands of corrupt people in positions of authority.
Mrs. Wright is a truly remarkable woman whose strength of character, complete honesty and personal determination to obtain justice has been, and is, an inspiration for anyone who has had the good fortune to know her.
Mrs. Wright has been such an inspiration to me in my particular battle.
I wish her every success in her pursuit of justice.
The following was sent to me by Councillor Chris McGimpsey dated 16 April 1996.
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN.
I HAVE KNOWN MRS WRIGHT FOR SOME FOUR YEARS. SHE IS A VERY ACTIVE LADY FOR HER AGE. SHE HAS DEDICATED THE LAST TWENTY YEARS OF HER LIFE TO THE CARE AND UPKEEP OF HER BROTHER MR FREDDIE ANDREWS.
DURING THIS PERIOD HER COMMITMENT TO FREDDIE'S NEEDS AND INTERESTS HAS BEEN TOTAL. SHE IS BOTH INTELLIGENT AND ARTICULATE AND I HAVE NO DOUBT WILL CONTINUE TO LOOK AFTER FREDDIE'S AFFAIRS METICULOUSLY.

Official Solicitor Brian Hall was forced to acknowledge, at the end of paragraph 29, in his report to the High Court on January 30th 1984:
"...I am also concerned to ensure that proper provision is made for all the domestic outgoings which, at present, are effectively administered by Mrs Wright."
I am very happy to include the following from an article written by the late, and great, Paul Foot:
Eileen Wright wrote to me in desperation two years ago. I visited her at her home and found her cheerfully determined, neither dangerous nor inaccurate.
