Galway, Monday, September 20, 1824
At a Meeting of the Committee for the Catholic Rent, held this day, at
the College House, the undernamed Gentlemen -
RICHARD MARTYN, Esq,
MARK LYNCH, Esq.
RICHARD JOYCE, Esq.
JAMES FYNN, Esq.
Were appointed to commence on next WEDNESDAY the collection of YEARLY
SUBSCRIPTIONS from the respectable inhabitants of the town, to enable the
Treasurer to make an early Remittance to the Association.
Galway, September 20, 1824.
A fashionable party of Electors were entertained last week, at the
hospitable Mansion of Mr. John D'Arcy, at Clifden - amongst whom were the
following respectable gentlemen:
Mr. Kirwan, of Dalgin;
Mr. Blake, of Reavyic;
Sir Charles Peehell;
The Messrs. Bell.
Mr. Daly of Dunsandle was expected; but the arrival of his apology put
an end to the political part of the conference; and the Gentlemen took
different routes without having transacted the business. We have heard from
our "little bird" now matters were to have been managed; but there is no use
in giving publicity to what were the intentions of Honourable Gentlemen. Is
it not very strange, that such an occurrence could not take place even in
the remote wilds of Cunnemara without our knowledge!!!
