[5]Medical Report

The house continues to improve progressively.  We have l73 patients in infirmary and infirm wards and ll9 in fever hospital and wards appropriated to fever cases. There were 12 deaths week ending Saturday last, 4 from fever, 3 diarrhea, 2 measles, l dysentery, l smallpox and l bronchitis and only 23 new cases of fever.
                                                James Shannon M.D.

The Clerk's Report:
In consequence of the illness in fever of the master of the auxiliary workhouse, Miltown Malbay, his provision checke account was not brought up. The clerk also reports that he could not sign the master provision checke account of the parent house in consequence of the inaccurate manner in which it was calculated.

[8]
Resolved:-
-
that the clerk do invite tenders by handbills and in the local newspapers from persons willing to undertake the collection of poor rates in the following electoral divisons, namely, Killilagh, Killonahan, Rathborney, Rath and Kilshanny, at a renumeration of 1/0 in the pound on the amount collected and lodged with the treasurer of the Union.    Tenders to be considered on this day week.
- that in consequence of the number of persons who are now excluded from outdoor relief, and seeking admission to the workhouse and no room being therein at present, the P.L.C. be respectfully requested to sign immediately their sealed order authorising the vice guardians to grant relief to all classes relievable under the 2nd section of the Irish Poor Relief Extention Act, the relieving officers being obliged weekly to give extensive provisional relief to the classes at present excluded and the frequent striking off and replacing of whom on the application and report book leads to great confusion and trouble.
- that in pursuance of the Commissioners' letter of l6th inst. the daily rations given to all children over 9 years of age upon the O.D.R. lists in Ennistymon Union be increased to one pound and that the clerk do forward to each of the R. Officers a copy of this resolution as
[9] their authority for such increase.

-
that in as much as M. Reynolds, (who was dispatched by the P.L.C. to bring up the ledger and other accounts of this Union) has after two or three days inspection of the books in December absented himself from that duty now near two months and left the accounts still unsettled and confused - the Poor Law Commissioners be requested forthwith to send down some other competent person to complete the accounts, as the vice guardians feel most unwilling that such irregularities should continue and which exists previous to their assumption of  office and for which only the clerk states he is no way responsible.
- that the following tenders be accepted for the supply of provisions and necessaries for the Ballykeale Auxiliary Workhouse to 25th March, Pat Keating rice l7.l0 per ton, William Molony, Ennis, tea 3/6, starch 33/0 per cwt, sugar 4 1/2d per lb., Thady Flanagan, dipt Candles 5/6 per dozen pounds, soap 26/0 per cwt, blue 4d per lb.

Medical Report:
The house continues to improve as you will perceive from the mortality during the month as compared with that of the last four up to this the last day of February.    The deaths between this house and Lahinch have been 53.  During the month of January they had been l85.  We have l39 patients in infirmary and ll0 in fever wards, 20 new cases of fever during the weekend and 12 deaths here and 2 at Lahinch, 5 from fever, 2 dysentery, 2 measles, l small pox and l from diarrhea.  I have to observe that during the month I frequently had to give orders on the relief officers for money payments owing to the number of bowel and other affections which I considered more from badly cooked Indian meal, food, fuel, being scarce and dear and also from the want of adequate covering to protect many of them from the cold of this inclement season of the year.  I would, therefore, recommend the vice guardians to provide rye meal for O.D.R. and give a choice to such persons as cannot provide fuel, something aut also to be done to have such wretched creatures off the works as have not sufficient covering.

Read
letters:-
- The Central Board of Health, 9th March, l849, enclosing copy of a communication from Mr. McNamara about establishing a F.H. at Corofin.
- 9th March, l849, intimating that the R. officers need not proceed with the election.   
- 10th March, l849, about Mr. Stack being in arrears as immediate lessor not to operate against him in case of E. of guardians.
- The Secretary, Education Officer l0th March, l849, approving of the manner in which the workhouse school is conducted.
- 12th March, l849 about Ballykeale House.

[7]
Resolved
- That the clerk be directed to invite tenders by handbills for competent persons willing to undertake the situation of steward in the respective stone breaking depots of the Union at a salary of 10/0 per week
- tenders to be taken into consideration on this day week.
- That the clerk be directed to inform the Commissioner that in reply of their letter of the 12th inst., no. 4294, Mr. Comerford would not let the house at Ballykeale except in the terms that any partitions taken down in the dwelling house should be replaced, this seemed to the vice guardians reasonable and as there were not many such would not involve a great expense, if even the premises chanced to be surrendered.  The vice guardians are not bound to put the offices in the same state further than replacing the racks and mangers which are preserved for  that purpose, the outlay is not likely to exceed 200, and the greater portion is for cooking and washing apparatus all of which are to be taken away by the vice guardians if the premises be surrendered. Winding doors etc put into the offices are to be deemed to be an improvement and not any injury. A right of passage to the house is clearly understood as granted and no such  difficulty will be raised by Mr. Comerford. Mr.Comerford would be willing to give any portion of land at
[8] fair rent, if required, but there are large day yards, and passages between the dwelling house and offices ample for all purposes of air and exercise unless the Commissioners desire to add any land for horticultural purposes. The reason of the agreement about the plank was that the vice guardians were unwilling to increase the expense of flooring the offices if to be tennanted only for 12 months, but if the house be occupied more than a year or permanently as a workhouse the plank being on the spot would be useful to work up and make permanently flooring. The suggestion of having them now valued is most desirable and had been previously determined on by the vice guardians.

Resolved:-
-
That James Gilligan be employed at 4/0 per week with rations to take charge of the shoe making department during the illness in fever of the master shoemaker. 
[9] - That the Commissioner be respectfully requested to apply to the Commissioner of Public Works to grant their order to the County Surveyor for supply of l000 stone breaking hammers, 50 sledges, 40 crow bars, l00 wheel and hand barrows for the outdoor recipients of relief.
- that the tender of Pat Quinn be accepted for glazing and replacing the windows of the auxiliary workhouse at Lahinch at 4d per pane.
