THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL
Galway, Thursday, November 4, 1824
At his house, in the Main-guard, on Saturday last, very generally and
deservedly regretted, Rickard Burke, Esq. for a series of years Public
Notary of this Town; and until lately, Clerk of the Peace, Town Clerk, and
Secretary to the Town of Galway Grand Jury. Few men have lived to the
advanced age of Mr. Burke, who left this world more regretted. In the
various departments in which he had been placed, a strict and unbending
integrity was the characteristic of his conduct; and while he fitted those
situations with honor to himself, and utility to the public, he was not less
to be respected in private life for his amiable and unobtrusive manners. Mr.
Burke lived to the advanced age of 80 years- and until his late sickness,
which did not continue more than a few days, enjoyed the most perfect
health, and discharged the duties of his station in person.
On Tuesday morning, in High-street, very deservedly regretted, Mr.
William Cox, a gentleman of strict integrity.

November 4, 1824.
THE Committee of the Mendicity Association beg leave to inform the
Public that the House which they have taken is now prepared, and will be
open for the reception of Mendicants on _____ next; they, therefore,
particularly request the inhabitants of this town to refrain from giving
alms in the streets, or at their doors, after that day, as they may depend
that all Mendicants will obtain adequate relief by applying to the Committee
at their Office, Wood-quay.
Such persons as have not yet paid in their subscriptions are earnestly
requested to do so, as it is distressing and inconvenient in the highest
degree to the Committee to be obliged to call for them at their houses.
Subscriptions and donations will be thankfully received by John
Ireland, Esq., High-street, Treasurer; the Rev. John D'Arcy, Back-st.,
Secretary, or any of the Members of the Committee- And all subscriptions
exceeding a Pound will be acknowledged, from time to time, in the Public
Prints, and when they fall short of that sum, in a Book kept by the Clerk of
the Committee, at the Office, Wood-quay, to which the Subscribers can have
recourse at any time.
