HC Deb 07 June 1905 vol 147 cc956-7

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Miss E. O'Leary, who was employed as † See page 95. workmistress at Faha National School, district 57, circuit 22, county Kerry, for over forty years, was recently compelled to retire without any pension or allowance of any kind whatever; and whether the Commissioners of Education in Ireland have any means at their disposal to give some assistance to Miss O'Leary in view of her length of service.


Miss O'Leary's services were discontinued because she had reached the limit of age. Work-mistresses are not entitled to pension or retiring gratuity.
