Important Meeting of the Local

 Branch of the Organisation.

The usual monthly meeting of the Tullylish (West Down) Branch of the United Irish League was held in the National Hall, Laurencetown on Sunday 8th October, at 3 o’clock p.m. There was a large attendance of members. The president, Mr. Wm. McLister, presided, and amongst those present were:- Messrs. Peter Fox, vice-President; Laurence Farnon, treasurer; Joseph Phillips, secretary; Henry McInerney, assistant secretary; John Kennedy. H. Cullen, R. Walker, Esq., D.C.; James Crothers, J. Campbell, Bernard Byrne, James Byrne, Bernard McConville, J. Boyle, E. McConville, P. McInerney, John McEvoy, J. Magee, H. McConvile, R. Rice, James McInerney, P. Conlon, F. Reid, J. Hoy. Two new members were enrolled and paid their subscriptions; this brings the membership of the branch up to the largest of any organisation that ever existed in the important parish of Tullylish.

A letter was read from Joseph Devlin Esq., M.P., with reference to a local matter, and was, left over to be discussed at the next meeting. A very important matter that has enraged the attention of the membership for a considerable period was discussed, and a committee was appointed to have it pushed forward with all haste. The secretary was instructed to writer to Mr. Devlin and to ask him to receive a deputation to place the whole details before him, and to get his advice and assistance.

A deputation was appointed consisting of the President, Vice-President, Secretary, Assistant Secretary, and Messrs. J. Kennedy, and H. Cullen to attend at the opening ceremony of the Glen A.O.H. Hall next Sunday 15th inst. This proves that the utmost harmony prevails amongst the members of the two great organisations. Great satisfaction was expressed at the result of the North Tyrone Election, it being the fifth time within four years that the majority of the men, including many Protestants, of that historic district have registered in the secret ballot paper their demand for a native Parliament; yet in spite of such incontrovertible facts Unionist speakers and writers persist in speaking and writing of Ulster as if the Province did not contain a solitary Nationalist.

On the motion op Mr. Phillips, seconded by Mr. Fox, it was decided to hold the next meeting on Sunday 22nd inst., at three o’clock sharp, to hear the report of the deputation, and to make arrangements for taking up the annual collection for the Parliamentary Fund. All members are requested to attend.
