The Limerick Industrial Association held its regular weekly committee meeting at 17 O’Connell Street on the 2nd of the month. The meeting was chaired by Mr. D. L. Roche, and it was attended by a substantial number of members.
One of the key topics discussed during the meeting was the outcome of the legal action taken by Mr. Frawley against Mr. Van Eesbeck. The case revolved around the alleged sale of a cap of foreign origin being marketed as an Irish-manufactured product. The committee expressed disappointment that the case had been decided on a legal technicality, but they strongly supported the association’s solicitor’s decision to request a case to be stated and for a trial to be conducted openly on the merits of the case. The committee commended Mr. Frawley for his proactive approach in this matter and praised his determination to uphold the integrity of Irish-made goods.
The committee members also emphasized their high regard for Mr. Frawley’s dedication and hoped that his actions would inspire others to follow his example by reporting any similar incidents they come across that might compromise the reputation of Irish-made products. The association’s commitment to preserving the authenticity of Irish-manufactured goods and preventing misleading practices remained a priority.
