HC Deb 21 August 1894 vol 29 c168
MR. FOLEY (Galway, Connemara)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Recorder of Galway has now reached the age of 80 years, having been called to the Bar in 1839; and whether he is able to continue to discharge the duties of his office?


There is no official record of the age of the Recorder of Galway, though I understand he is 80 years old. He was appointed County Court Judge in 1859, and no Reports have been received as to his inability to discharge his duty. He has had neither assistance nor locum tenens in the discharge of his ordinary duties nor duties as Revising Barrister during the years 1893 or 1894.
