HC Deb 09 May 1904 vol 134 cc767-8

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can give the name of the present manager of the Achonry, county Sligo, National Schools; whether the manager resides in the district; and, if not, whether, in view of the fact that the estate on which these schools are situate has recently been sold to the Congested Districts Board, and that the inhabitants of the locality are Roman Catholics, he will recommend the Commissioners of National Education to appoint the Rev. B. Dunn, P.P., as manager.


The manager of the school is Mr. Charles Phibbs. He resides as Chaffpool, 2¾ miles distant from the school. The nomination of a manager does not rest with the Commissioners of National Education, but with the patron, Captain Armstrong.
