At the monthly meeting of Limerick No.2 District Council presided over by Mayor Thomas Bourke, a range of community issues were discussed. Attendees included council members and representatives from the Local Government Board.
One topic of discussion was a request from the Board for monthly reports from the Inspector of Dairies and Cowsheds to be furnished to the Council. The Board also disallowed a claim from Dr Ryan for visiting and inspecting the creamery at Clonlara, stating that it fell under his ordinary duties.
Council member Michael Hannan raised the issue of a lack of water in the well at Coolderra, and called for a pump to be installed. The meeting included a discussion on the need for pumps at other locations, including Bridgetown and Ardnatagle, with motions subsequently submitted by members for consideration.
