The letter to Santa Claus reads:

‘Good Luck. I want a baby doll and a waterproof with a hood and a pair of gloves and a toffee apple and a gold penny and a silver sixpence and a long toffee. ‘

This 100 year-old letter was discovered by the owners of an old house. The letter was tucked in the chimney of a fireplace. After all these years, the letter is still intact apart from the scorched area in the middle. The current owner of the house found the letter in 1992 and kept it as a keepsake from another period.

Investigations were made and based on the 1911 census in Dublin, a family with 3 kids lived at that address during the said year. Hannah and her younger brother Fred were probably the ones who wrote the letter many years before.
