A woman named Ann QUISH, and her three children, aged 9, 6, and three months, applied for 
admission, or, as she was not long resident, to be allowed some clothing for her and her children, 
and she would go to her own place. She said she and her husband were from near Oulart, and her 
husband had been long employed by Mr. John REDMOND, of Wexford, builder, at works at 
Morriscastle. The work there over he followed Mr. REDMOND to Wexford, and was again employed 
by him, but work beginning to look scarce and likely to be less, her husband, with her consent, 
agreed to go to Liverpool, though Mr. REDMOND would keep him longer but then it would be to late, 
and they would all have to be in the workhouse.
Mr. P. Lambert asked her was her husband out of work when he went away.
Applicant replied that he was not, but he would be, and she gave him leave to go away, and he went 
on Monday.
The applicant said if she got some clothes she would make home and never trouble the Board again.
After some consideration, the wretched appearance of the children being looked to, the Board 
admitted her, and, at her own request, on Monday, after getting some clothing, she said she would 
return to her own division.

Mr. P. LAMBERT, who had given notice to consider the change of chargeability of Catherine BLANCHE 
from off the Lady’s Island Division, being informed by the clerk and Master that she had left the 
Workhouse, declined to occupy the Board with the matter. He was only astonished how she had 
been admitted on that division. The Master said she was  admitted on her own statement-no one 
being present to question it.
