William Wakeman quoted from an Ordnance Survey letter of John O'Donovan (July, 1836) which lambasts those who would ridicule the islanders' beliefs regarding the statue of St. Molaise: "It is astonishing how preachers, and ignorant uneducated rascals of that description, have been able to say so much about the figure of Molash, and pass over the most curious remains of antiquity on this island, which will yet attract the notice of men of real learning and true piety, when hypocritical cant shall be condemned as a science having a worse tendency than phrenology..."
