A Protest.

A communication was read to the board signed by Maria Brennan, John Doogue and William Brennan, protesting against the erection of labourers' cottages under the Labourers' Act in the case of building houses, first in Ballickmoyler, and secondly and thirdly in the townland of Turra, in the Turra division, Queen's County [Laois].

The houses objected to are those proposed to be erected on that part of the lands held by William O' Brien, Ballickmoyler, Edward Lawler of Turra and Mrs Margaret Coogan of Turra.

J.B. O'Neill said they had a right to object but they have no right to dictate.

The Chairman, Sir Thomas P. Butler marked the protest read, with the view to its being brought forward at the Local Government Board enquiry.

Note from Michael Brennan:

Maria Brennan is my Great Great Grandmother
Maria Brennan would have been William's mother
