The Sea-Divided Gael
(abridged)
From the Galway ‘Express’ of May 16th we extract the following :

Mr. M. J. O’Loughlin, Collector of Inland Revenue, Head Distributor of Stamps, and Receiver of Crown Quit Rents for the Counties of Galway, Clare, Mayo, Roscommon. etc., has been appointed to the important Collectorship of Inland Revenue at Manchester.

Mr. O’Loughlin will enter on his new duties on the 26th inst. The many friends of Mr O’Loughlin, while they will be glad to learn of his promotion, will be sorry that it means his removal from Galway. Mr O’Loughlin has been collector here for over three years, and has made himself very popular with all classes of the community. To all public movements of a deserving character he has always been willing to lend a helping hand and to cite only one instance his services in connection with the Claddagh Disaster Fund will not soon be forgotten.

Mr. O’Loughlin is a native of Kinvara . He was educated at Mungret College Limerick, has been 20 years in the Inland Revenue and, during that time, has served in many places in the three Kingdoms. He is one of the best known science men in the service. He is an honorary member of Lord Armstrong’s Ordnance Works at Newcastle-on-Tyne, and in the Royal School of Mines, London, won a scholarship, coming out first of 300 students. In addition to that Mr. O’Loughlin is a recognized authority on taxation, revenue and kindred subjects, having on several occasions taken the first prize offered by the ‘Civilian’ for the best essay on subjects connected with taxation. The best wishes of Mr. O’Loughlin’s many friends and acquaintances in Galway will follow him to Manchester, and his future career will be watched with interest in the City of the Tribes. (Mr. P. O’Loughlin. a brother, is the present District-Secretary of the Hibernian, A. C. B. Society, Sydney.)
