[288] - that Mr. Mathias Kenny be appointed collector of rates for the electoral divisions of Miltown Malbay in room of Thomas Moroney deceased at a remuneration of 1/0 in the pound.

The vice-guardians having taken into consideration the expediency of appointing an assistant schoolmaster for the Miltown Malbay workhouse in the stead of Mr. Kelly who has been acting as master and who is not deemed qualified to discharge the duties of the office,
Resolved that the resignation of Mr. Kelly be called for and that an assistant schoolmaster be appointed at a salary of 20 per annum with an apartment and rations, the election to take place on Wednesday the 10th October 1849.
In consequence of the dismissal from office of Mr. Murphy, relieving officer of Kilonahan District,and the resignation of Mr. Michael Hynes, relieving officer of Burren district,
Resolved that advertisement be inserted in the local papers for a relieving officer for each of the above districts, the former at a salary of 25 per annum, and the latter at a salary of 45 heretofore paid and that the election take place on Wednesday 10th October 1849.
