HC Deb 23 March 1888 vol 324 cc181-2
MR. M'CARTAN (Down, S.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether any appointment has yet been made by the Senate of the Royal University of Ireland to the vacant Fellowship in Natural Philosophy caused by the resignation of the Very Rev. G. Molloy; and, whether he can state the date of his resignation, and the cause of the delay in making the new appointment?

THE PARLIAMENTARY UNDER SECRETARY (Colonel KING-HARMAN)(who replied) said (Kent, Isle of Thanet)

The Senate of the Royal University informs me that the Very Rev. G. Molloy resigned his Fellowship as from the 18th of April, 1887. They have postponed filling the vacancy, pending their decision in regard to the conditions of appointment and tenure of Fellowships which they have had under consideration.
