HC Deb 13 June 1901 vol 95 cc288-9
MR. ARCHDALE (Fermanagh, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the † See Debates [Fourth Series], Vol. xciii., page 1015. Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether students attending St. Macarten's Seminary, Monaghan, from districts outside the counties of Fermanagh and Monaghan are allowed to derive any benefit, either in the shape of reduced fees or prizes, from the Fermanagh Royal School Endowment; and whether he has any official information to the effect that a student named Keenan, from county Tyrone, has been admitted at £12 10s., half the usual fee; if so, will he cause an inquiry to be made in this matter.


I am informed that the scheme of May, 1891, contains no restriction as to the selection of students attending a qualified school, within the meaning of the scheme, to whom the Fermanagh Roman Catholic Board may provide prizes out of the endowments in the shape of reduced fees or prizes. I am also informed that the student named in the second paragraph has never received any benefit from the endowment such as suggested.
