HC Deb 24 June 1903 vol 124 c378
MR. REDDY (King's County, Birr)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the fact that the County Council of King's County have decided, in compliance with the wishes of the inhabitants, to restore the ancient name of the town of Kilcormac instead of the modern one of Frankford; whether there is any enactment preventing them from so doing; and, if so, will he intimate to the Local Government Board and the Commissioner of Valuation the propriety of not interfering with the desire of the County Council in the matter.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The County Council, at a recent meeting, adopted a resolution changing the name of the town of Frankford to that of Kilcormac. There is no authority, statutory or otherwise, enabling the council to make the proposed change, and the council has been so informed by the Local Government Board.
