Kinneigh, Ballymoney, and Desertserges Relief Committee

At a meeting of this committee, held on Thursday, the Rev. M. Delay, P.P., in the chair, a vote of condolence on the proposal of the Rev. John O'Sullivan, R.C.C., seconded by the Rev. Canon acNamara, Rector of Ballymoney was passed unanimously to the widow and family of the late respected chairman, D. Conner, Esq., J. P., Manch House. One hundred and thirty-five families got relief. The number of destitute applicants is so much on the increase that, unless subscriptions from the landlords and other sources come soon and liberal, the consequences will be deplorable.
