NATIONALITY IN DOWN

Stirring Meeting at Tullylish, Banbridge.

 

WORK OF REORGANISATION.

An enthusiastic public meeting of the Nationalists of Tullylish, Banbridge, Co. Down, was held in the local United League Hall on Sunday evening last, for the purposes of reorganising in that important portion of the constituency of West Down.

There was a crowded attendance. Mr. William McLeister, president of the local branch of the United Irish League, presided.

Mr. James P. Convery official organiser UI.L., and Mr. Joseph Connellan, Newry, were also in attendance. The chairman, addressing the meeting, referred at some length to the necessity for the reorganisation of the local branch of the national

organisation in that part as country, and expressed the hope that as the result of that meeting the strength of the local branch of the U.I.L., would be considerably augmented by the addition of increased members into their ranks. (Applause.)

The secretary of the meeting, Mr. J. Kennedy, then read the resolutions, which declared unalterable fidelity to the principles of the National Self-Government, and support for the Irish Parliamentary Party; thus a collection in the parish in aid of the Irish parliamentary funds be inaugurated: that the meeting repudiate as a slander the assertion that our Protestant fellow-countrymen are in danger of intolerant treatment at the hand of the Nationalist majority; and finally, deep regret was expressed at the accident that occurred to Mr. John E. Redmond, M.P., the illustrious and eloquent leader of the Irish people.

Mr. James P. Convery, official organiser of the United Irish League, who received a cordial reception, delivered a stirring address in the course of which he traced the history and achievements of the Irish Parliamentary Party, and the historic incidents in the fight for the overthrow of this detestable system of landlordism which has been the cause of untold ruin and suffering to their people in the past. And it was due to the persistent efforts of the Irish Party, and the self-sacrificing support of the people of Ireland that they had been enabled to totally vanquish the power of that accused tyranny for ever. (Loud applause.)

The speaker also dealt at some length with the result of the part’s efforts in the passing of the Labourers Act, Town Tenants Act, and other ameliorative measures.

Mr. Joseph Connellan, Newry, addressed the meeting in an eloquent speech, which was frequently applauded. The resolutions were then passed unanimously.

Upwards of 100 handed in their names and subscriptions.

The election of officers was then proceeded with, and the following were elected;- Hon. Presidents. Very Rev. M. McConville, D.D., P.P.: Rev. Henry McGivern, C.C.; and rev. J. O’Neill, C.C., Gilford; president, Mr. William McLeister; vice-president, Mr. Peter Fox, E.N.T.; treasurer, Mr. Lawerence Farnon; secretary, Mr. J. Phillips; assistant secretary, Mr. Henry McEnerney. The committee was also appointed.

Arrangements were made for taking up a Parliamentary collection. It was also unanimously decided to hold a great Home Rule demonstration at Laurencetown, Banbridge, Co. Down, on Sunday, 17thMarch next.
