VOLUNTEER RECRUITING IN TUAM
‘The Minutes having been signed a deputation consisting of Messrs Aston, Young, Fisher and Lieut. Hughes informed the Council that they would be obliged if the Council took up the business on the Agenda No. 8 relative to recruiting, as they had to arrange for the public meeting to be held in the Town today. The Chairman asked leave to move that the Standing Orders be departed from in this case and that the deputation be heard.
Leave was accordingly given by the Council and Mr Young having explained the objects of the deputation it was proposed by Mr PJ Costelloe & seconded by Mr James McDonnell and passed unanimously:- “That the members of this Council form themselves into Committee to further the interests of voluntary recruiting by every means in their power.”
