At their weekly meeting in the County Buildings, Galway on Saturday, Mr Martin Quinn, chairman, Galway County Council finance committee, gave the tenders for repairs to the Kinvara courthouse to Mr Patrick Burke, Ballinderreen, Kilcolgan at £39. Mr G. Lee, county surveyor, reported that Messrs, Griffin Brothers, Gort, who had tendered at £28.15s were not prepared to carry out the work at that figure as they had made a mistake in the matter. Recently the County Council secured a long lease of the Kinvara Courthouse.
