At a special meeting of the Kinvara Town Tenants’ Association held on Wednesday evening, under the Chairmanship of Mr. Thomas P. Corless, D.C., the following resolution was unanimously adopted;
That we, the members of Kinvara Town Tenants’ Association, urge upon Mr. John E. Redmond, the able and distinguished leader of the Irish Parliamentary Party, the advisability of giving the town tenants of Ireland, who were always the backbone of the National movement, direct representation in Parliament, and that with a view to that end, we respectfully suggest that Mr. Coghlan Briscoe, T.C. the energetic and popular Secretary of the Town Tenants’ Association, will be nominated for the vacancy in the representation of North Galway.
