No one was allowed to leave town. . .

A letter from John N. Scallan to the National Irish Bank providing another little insight into Enniscorthy life during the Rising of 1916.

3rd May, 1916

XXXX & Ors. 260 shares.

Transfer No. 85661

Dear Sir,

With reference to this matter we have not had an opportunity to getting the Deed completed owing to the disturbed status of the town here during the Easter Holidays, when we thought we could have it executed by the Trustees in the country, and no one was allowed to leave Town.  However, we hope to have it completed now and will send it to you as soon as possible.

Yours faithfully,

John N. Scallan
