Lord Emly and the Limerick Telegram

NPG Ax17751; William Monsell, 1st Baron Emly

A petition was submitted to Lord Emly regarding a recent election in the Limerick North Division. The contentious election saw the Commissioner elected by a narrow margin of just one vote, following four days of voting. In response, Lord Emly sent a telegram from The Hague on Saturday, expressing his gratitude to the people of Limerick for their support. He wrote, “I wish to thank Limerick cordially for the confidence they have shown by granting the election in Limerick. – Emly.”
