At a recent meeting of the United Irish League of Limerick, presided over by Alderman Joyce, MP, and attended by Mr Daniel Hanley as secretary, a letter from Mr R. Gibson, salesmaster of the Public Creamery Market, was read. Mr Gibson, who was unable to attend the meeting due to illness, expressed his support for the United Irish League and the Irish Party, emphasizing the importance of their independent stance from English parties.
Mr Gibson also discussed the issue of land ownership in Ireland, pointing out that many Irish landlords were willing to address the problem as they understood the truth of their position. However, there were others who have become mad with ignorance and believe themselves to be more powerful and important than the nation, despite being “the smallest and more useless portion.”
The letter showcased Mr Gibson’s strong views on Irish nationalism and his belief in the importance of addressing the issue of landownership and supporting the Irish Party’s endeavors.
