HC Deb 11 July 1890 vol 346 c1479

I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether he is aware that James Fenlon, a National school teacher of Carlow Graigne, attended a meeting at Carlow Graigne on 1st June of this year, the meeting in question being held with the object of establishing a memorial to the rebels who fell in 1798, and that James Fenlon was member of the committee of said memorial; and whether attending such meeting, and being on said committee, incapacitates him from retaining his position as a National school teacher?


I am informed that the facts are as stated in the first paragraph of the question, and that the matter is under the consideration of the Commissioners.

MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)

Have not the Irish people as much right to remember 98 as Englishmen have to remember the 5th of November?

[No answer was given.]
