HC Deb 16 March 1896 vol 38 c1024

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether any steps will be taken to provide a covered gymnasium, like that given the Meath School at Blackrock, to the Baltimore Industrial School?


The cost of providing a gymnasium at the Blackrock School was derived from private sources, and no portion of it was contributed by the Government. A gymnasium would no doubt be a great addition to the Baltimore School, and those interested in that institution would, I believe, render it good service by imitating the example set by the managers of the Meath School and endeavour to raise funds for the purpose.
