Freemans Journal February 6th, 1904
At a specially convened meeting of the Kinvara Pier and Harbour Committee held on Sunday last, the very Rev. Thomas Burke, P.P., in the chair – the following resolution proposed by Mr. Thomas P. Corless J.P., M.C.C. and seconded by Mr John Flatley (Flatley and Joyce) was unanimously adopted;
That we, the members of the Kinvara Harbour Committee, desire to thank the Galway County Council for their generous grant of 1,000 pounds towards the improvement of the harbour. That, as the County Council have carried out the conditions mentioned in the letter of their secretary, dated March 6th, 1903, we now call upon Mr. Wyndham to at once allocate a sum of £1,200 out of the Marine Works fund to carry out the much-needed improvements of the pier and harbour, as the matter can no longer brook delay.
