Fast and Abstinence!

Minutes of Carlow Workhouse 1857.

Resolved: That the Roman Catholic chaplain applied to the Board to give the Roman Catholic paupers a substitute for milk with their breakfast tomorrow "being Good Friday" as they are required to observe Fast and Abstinence by church law~~

The Board acceded to his wishes and ordered the Master of the Workhouse to provide water as a substitute instead of milk.

The above is a true and accurate transcript of the original document.
