[5] Medical Report
There are 90 patients in infirmary and infirm wards and 30 in fever hospital. Two died of fever during the week and we had four new cases.  Fever and bowel affections are on the decrease, indeed the house is more healthy at present, considering the numbers in it, than it has been for some time past.                                                                                                            James Shannon. M.D.

Read commissioners' letter
- Of 15th June 1848, sealed order relative to out door relief being extended to 16th day of July next inclusive.
- Of June 1848, transmitting herewith letter from Secretary, Public Works Loan commissioners, requiring payment of instalments due on loan for workhouse. The clerk directed to respecfully request of commissioners for administering the law for relief of the poor in Ireland for information of vice guardians, advice as to the course they ought to adopt. 
- Of 21st June 1848, relative to returns ordered 26th ultimo.
[7]
The vice guardians having had reason to complain of the constant absence of the schoolmaster from the school and having observed that he has frequently associated with the pauper females, and also having upon Tuesday last the 20th inst. found him associated with the females in the probationary ward, he was summoned to the board room when, as he could not give any satisfactory reason for absenting himself from the school, or mixing with the female paupers, it was
Resolved that if he does not exhibit some serious improvement in his general conduct previous to the removal of the boys to Lahinch that the commissioners be requested to dismiss him.  The clerk having found a number of boys playing at cards on Tuesday the 20th inst. and having suceeeded in taking the cards from Thomas Considine (and Michael O'Loughlin) brought him before the vice guardians when it was
Resolved that he be deprived of his milk for 2 days and that he be caused to break stones for one hour more each day than the ordinary time for labour.  Also Michael Tarsnane for smoking and disorderly conduct was ordered the mitigated punishment (it being his first offence) of  deprivation of milk for 1 day and to work an extra hour.   
[8]
Owing to the great increase of patients in Moymore fever hospital it was,
Resolved that Hanora O'Loughlin be appointed assistant nurse at a salary of 2-0-0 per annum with rations and apartments. The clerk was ordered to advertise for relieving officers for Corofin and Rath Electoral Division and also for Killilagh and Kilshanny Electoral Division and at the same time he was directed to inform commissioners that the application of vice guardians (made a second time with all force) to treasurer to give a loan on security of rates, to be repaid by instalments, was unsuccessful, he having most decidedly declined to enter into any arrangement of the kind. 
Ordered that the clerk do forward copy of case submitted to Council relative to the rate and grounded upon the letter of Mr. M. Walsh, late master of the work house,
[9]to W. Hancock Esq. P.L.C. dated 3rd 1848 and Councils opinion thereon. The guardians having sent for Mr. M. MacNamara the present clerk of the union they requested of him that he would sendin his resignation, their reason for doing so the guardians will themselves explain to commissioners.

[5] Doctor's Report
The house continues healthy. We had some increase of fever during the week having had 11 new cases.  There are 86 in infirmary and infirm wards, 27 in fever hospital. Two died of diarrhea since this day week. 
                                                            James Shannon M.D.

Master's report
On Tuesday 27th June, I heard flute playing in the schoolmaster's room, and the boys dancing in their ward. I called on the schoolmaster to open his doors, which he refused to do, saying he was going to bed, but I insisted on having it opened. I found Frederick Toole, Patk. Considine and Michl. O'Loughlin inside.  I then said it was not right to have people in his room at such an hour ( 10 o'clock) and demanded his key which he refused to give up. I, on the Sunday before, told him that it was against the rules to play the flute in this house. 
                                                             Matt. Hehir , master. 

[6] The schoolmaster being summoned before the board and the master's report having been Read, it was upon investigation fully confirmed. 
Resolved that the schoolmaster be suspended in the performance of his office and that copy of the master's report and proceedings relating thereunto be inserted in the minutes. 

Read commissioners' letter

- Of 22nd June 1848, relative to the appointment by vice guardians of two of the workhouse paupers as assistants in Moymore Fever Hospital and stating that the commissioners consider it objectionable to appoint paupers as they are rarely able to exercise due authority over those with whom they have associated on terms of equality.  The clerk directed in reply to say for information of commissioners that the attending doctor to Moymore   Hospital expressed himself to the vice guardians to the effect that the above persons were experienced and well conducted and he was of opinion that they would be of great service to the new establishment and, as Moymore Hospital is quite a separate concern, having no communication whatever with the workhouse being more than three miles apart, the guardians saw no objection
[7] to complying with the physician's suggestions.
- Of 22nd June 1848, in reference to a second issue of sealed order extending outdoor relief to the 16th July in consequence of vice guardians not being aware of the order forwarded for their instruction and dated 15th day of June 1848. 
- Of June 1848, requiring a statement of the number of protestant inmates in the workhouse and auxiliary and their ages respectively, required return forwarded on 30th ultimo.   
- Of 28th June 1848 relative to the resolution of vice guardians accepting Mr Herbert's tender to build the boundary wall and stating that the commissioners for administering the Law for the relief of the Poor in Ireland see objection to the acceptance of Mr. Herbert's tender. 
[8]
In reference to letter of 29th June 1848 stating that the commissioners for administering the laws for relief of the poor in Ireland, ordered a letter to be addressed to the clerk on the 21st inst. calling attention to circular of 26th ultimo requiring returns of the expenses and collection of May.  And also that very great inconvenience has been occasioned by the non forwarding of same and that commissioners are much dissatisfied that exertions have not been made by the clerk to prepare the information required, it was ordered by the vice guardians that the acting clerk do forward full explanation of the difficulties that present themselves to the preparing of the returns mentioned and the obstacles that exist to the delay of other required returns for the information of the House of Commons and at the same time copy of Mr. Mathew's letter dated Thurles 29th June 1848. 
- Of June 1848, from Central Board of Health stating that the Board have deemed it advisable to rescind the certificate for the Miltown Malbay Fever Hospital and to
[9] issue the requisition enclosed for the future support of the establishment and informing that the intervention of the Relief Committee will be no longer necessary for its management.  And in reference to enquiry relative to the interment of patients who may die in the district of fever or epidemic disease, stating that the requisition enpowers vice guardians to provide funds for the proper and decent interment of such persons in accordance with Sec 16 10 Vic C.22. 

Copy of Mr Mathew's letter tovice Guardians, Thurles, 29th June 1848.

Gentlemen,
In reply to your letter of the 23rd inst. I beg to inform you that the clerk I recommended to Mr. Hancock is at present engaged at the Caherciveen Union.  I expect to see him in a week and shall direct him to proceed without delay to your union. I would consider 10.0.0 to 15.0.0 sufficient remuneration but I do not wish to have him paid until after the audit and I shall arrange to attend when the accounts are Ready.
                                                         I have the honor to be
                                                             Gentlemen,
                                                        Your obedient servant.
                                                             Chas. Mathew.
                                                                Auditor.

[9]
Mr. Michael Mc Namara having sent in his resignation as clerk of the union, it was accepted of by the guardians. Resolved that Garrett Fitzgerald be appointed temporary relieving officer during the illness of Mr. James Clancy.

Mr. Daly's relief lists and application books having been examined and great irregularities and neglect having been proved it was Resolved that Mr. Henry Daly be suspended in the performance of his duty as relieving officer for Ennistymon Electoral Division,
Ordered that the clerk write to Mr. Thom informing him that the several books required for the service of the union have not been sent, though written for twice. That considerable inconvenience and loss must result from further delay in providing them and that it will be necessary unless they be forwarded at once to acquaint the commissioners of the cause of certain irregularities and ommissions which cannot be rectified until they are obtained. 
Ordered that the several collectors be informed by the clerk that their non-attendance at the board room this day, in accordance with directions given to them, is an irregularity, a repetition of which will lead to their being suspended from office and reported to the commissioners for dismissal. 
[10] With reference to the letter of 7th June 1848, the purpose of which was brought before the notice of the vice guardians by Mr. Hancock, Poor Law Inspector, and by which it appears that the attention of vice guardians was directed to the fact that relief issued under the then existing sealed order was confined to three classes of destitute persons viz. Widows with 1 child dependant on them respectively, 2nd. children whose parents are both dead, and to able bodied men, one or more members of whose families are affected by severe sickness or serious accident.  The vice guardians would observe that until apprised by Mr. Hancock of the fact not being so, they had believed that under said order relief could be legally given to able bodied destitute persons who complied with the conditions required by the commissioners viz. labour at stone breaking for 8 hours.  The vice guardians further beg respectfully to lay before the commissioners the circumstance of their having, on their appointment to the union, found that class of destitute persons in receipt of relief, authorized and sanctioned by Mr. Owen Lloyd, Poor Law Inspector, upon whose application to the commissioners for a supply of stone breaking implements from the Board of Works, it appears from the commissioners' letters of 18th and 25th March 1848 that the requisite number of implements had been asked for by them, and were subsequently forwarded to the vice guardians.  Under these circumstances the vice guardians were fully under the impression that the relief granted by them was legal and as they are now made aware of the contrary being the fact they respectfully pray the commissioners to issue the usual order authorizing relief under the 2nd section of the act to the able bodied on consideration of 10 hours labour at stone breaking.  The state of the workhouse cannot be forwarded for the information of commissioners owing to the erroneous returns appearing on the master's books which it is expected will be correct by next week.

                                                                                        Charles Finucane. M.D.

Mr. McMullen, assistant architect, Poor Law Commission, having inspected the additional buildings erected at the workhouse as also the auxiliary house at Lahinch reported that there was accommodation in both places for eleven hundred and fifty paupers.  He also left a statement of the repairs which he considered were necessary to be done by the contractor for keeping the house in repair and recommended the making of a sewer from the cess pool to the privy in the women's yard to carry off the surplus water.
Ordered that Mr. Herbert be called upon forthwith to have the necessary repairs effected.

[8]
Resolved that as the service of Mr. H. Daly are very necessary for the purpose of rectifying whatever errors may be in the books for outdoor relief in the Ennistymon Electoral Division, it is advisable to withdrawn the suspension resolved upon at the last weekly meeting. Mr. Cronyn having brought over Mr.O'Brien, the master of the union workhouse at Ennis, for the purpose of examining the books of the master of this house, which was approved of by the vice guardians, it was found on his inspection of them that some books had not been kept at all and that the others had been very irregulary kept.

Resolved
- that having given Mr. and Mrs. Hehir a fair trial before forwarding the queries respecting them to the commissioners for their approbation and being now convinced of their incompetency to fill the situation of master and matron, we do call upon them to resign. 
-that Mr. O'Brien's expenses be paid by the union.
- That a contract be entered into for printing the list of persons receiving outdoor relief in the several electoral division.

Resolved that advertisement be inserted in the General Advertiser, Clare Journal and Limerick Chronicle inviting applications for the situation of master and matron to be received on Friday the 4th day of August next, salary of the master to be 50 and matron 25 per annum.
