HC Deb 12 March 1896 vol 38 c760
MR. D. KILBRIDE (Galway, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether his attention has been called to the letter of the Bishop of Galway and Kilmacdaugh, in the Freeman's Journal of the 9th inst., suggesting that the State will reconstitute the Queen's College at Galway on lines that will afford Catholics to enter without a strain of conscience: and, whether, considering the counties of Galway and Mayo, apart from the other western counties, have a population of considerably upwards of 400,000, he will so reconstitute the College as to enable the Catholics of Connaught to take advantage of the education facilities which the late Sir Robert Peel intended for them?


This Question raises an important issue which would require more consideration than I have yet had an opportunity of giving it before I should feel myself justified in offering an opinion.
