The Limerick No. 2 District Council held its monthly meeting, presided over by Mr Thomas Bourke. The Clerk reported that the Local Government Board had received a reply stating that Mr Hennessy had already been allowed his ordinary costs amounting to five guineas. The Local Government Board wrote that the Bridgetown Dispensary District was in a sanitary condition but a pump was needed in Bridgetown, which the Board would consider. Claims for compensation from Sergeant William Hood, Michael Moloney, and Margaret Ringrose were passed to the board’s solicitor for consideration. A notice of motion was handed in that the Veterinary Surgeon be paid a nominal sum for attending cases and giving evidence. Thomas Woulfe, Ardnacrusha, was appointed caretaker for Puarteen churchyard. A notice of motion was proposed to add the Munster News to the papers already accepted for the advertising contract.
