Kerry Sentinel 1878-1916, Saturday, February 25, 1899; Page: 4
In response to a circular posted extensively through the district a public meeting was held in Newtownsandes on Sunday last by the labourers and artisans of Leitrim, Newtownsandes, and Knockanure districts of Listowel Union, to consider their positions in the coming elections.
Mr. Thomas Mulvihill (Mason) proposed and was seconded by Mr. John Nolan (Carpenter), that Mr. Thos Hanrahan take the chair.
The Chairman dwelt at considerable length (being applauded at intervals) on the great boon conferred on them by the Local Government Act, and asked those present to select good men to represent their interests in the District and County Council’s.
After a general discussion the following resolutions were adopted.
Proposed by John Collins and seconded by Michael Kennelly—” That we, the labourers of Newtownsandes, Leitrim and Knockanure districts, request the voters (farmers and others) to support one labour candidate for each electoral division of the Listowel Union. As the labourers stood by the farmers during the agitation they are now entitled to recognition for such services.”
Proposed by Mr John Dore, and seconded Mr. Michael Donovan” That Mr. Michael J. Nolan be selected a candidate to represent us in the County Council, the selection of District Councillors for above divisions be deferred until next Sunday.”
Mr Nolan then came forward and thanked the meeting. Speaking at some length, he said it was unnecessary for him to explain his opinions or politics to those who knew him from his childhood. He promised, if elected, to support the labourers and artisans to the best of his ability.
There being no other candidate proposed, Mr. Michael J. Nolan was selected amidst cheers, after which the following resolution proposed by Mr. Thos. Mulvihill, and seconded by Mr. Mathew Behane” That, we, the labourers of this district, ask our brother labourers all over the Tarbert County Council District to vote for Mr. M. J. Nolan, for County Councillor. He being a kind friend, a supporter and large employer of the labourers, and those living under him speak highly of his treatment of them.”
