Geraldton Guardian 15th April, 1924
The Bishop of Galway in a speech advised the parents of wayward girls to ‘lay the lash across their backs.’ Referring to the shameful lack of chastity among youngsters he said; ‘I blame the girls themselves. They are not innocent and are not misled. Some of our Irish girls are becoming regular devils and a disgrace to the countywide. If it were not for the boys’ purity, there would be more scandals than now.’
