For the sodding record, apparently too many people are actually not bothering to actually read the play Riders to the Sea, and are misquoting it. It's in the public domain and available online.
I was actually quite shocked recently when I discovered the parallels with my life and that of JM Synge. I was lucky, I got my Hodgkins Lymphoma almost 100 years later than him, the swelling in my neck went down with Chemotherapy, I didn't die of it. I found it quite strange to read his biography online and realise how lucky I was.
