“Limerick Court Rules in Favor of Plaintiff in Electric Company Breach of Agreement Case”

At the Limerick Quarter Sessions presided over by Judge Adams, an action was brought against the Allegemiene Electric Company by Patrick McNamara, a skilled mason, seeking £50 in damages for a breach of agreement. Mr O’Dornell represented the plaintiff, while Mr J. M. Fitt appeared on behalf of the defendant.

The plaintiff testified that he had entered into an agreement with the defendants to perform flagging work in the city as part of the installation of electric lighting. However, according to Mr M’Namara, the defendants failed to fulfill their part of the agreement.

In defence, Mr Raine presented a witness who stated that the work had already been carried out by another individual at a lower rate of 1s. 3d. per hour.

After considering the evidence, Judge Adams rendered a decision in favor of the plaintiff and awarded him a decree of five guineas (£5.25) in compensation for the breach of agreement by the electric company.
