Island Eddy – 1928

The Mail 12th June, 1928 p5

The inhabitants of Eddy Island, about nine miles from Galway, Ireland, have not paid their rates for several years and £2,000 is now due from them.

Many years ago a small army of bailiffs arrived on the island to make seizures of stock but were beaten off by the islanders. Since then no real effort has been made to get the rates.
