At the last meeting of the Gort Board of Guardians, Mr. Michael O’Donohoe (chariman) presiding, the following resolution was unanimously adopted, on the motion of Mr. Thomas. P. Corless, J.P., Co. C., seconded by Mr James Keane;
That we, the Board of Guardians of the Gort Union, in view of the great distress in the Kinvara District and the great delay in commencing the repair of Kinvara Harbour, regret that the officials of the Galway County Council did not lay before the Council at their last meeting the plans of the Board of Works re Kinvara Pier and Harbour, and have them submitted to the Council for approval with a view to hasten the commencement of the work and give much needed employment.
