I researched and wrote this article back in 2000. I would do this differently now. I would add more flavour into Christy Brown's life, as there is probbaly more research that has been revealed about him, since 2000. As the Dictionary of Irish Biography (DIB) is also an online resource, it can be viewed as an 'organic' document - and one that can be continuously updated as new insights and data is revealed about a particular person. This data must be verified though by the DIB's Managing Editor, etc, before it is published onlines, as an update. - Thanks Carmel
