Some boys in Tulla Workhouse ask for More, 1855

Clare Journal, Thur 21 Jun 1855:
Tulla Union. Some musty meal came under the notice of the Board – the Guardians agreed to return what remained of the bad meal. Some of the boys of the house came before the Board and stated that they were “starved with the hunger” and wished to have some other food served out to them, until good meal could be booked.
It seems the meal situation had been remedied by the following Thursday:
Clare Journal, Thur 28 Jun 1855:
Tulla Union. Messrs. Bannatyne’s tenders for breadstuffs to 29th Sept. next was accepted at the following prices, viz: - Ist Flour £23 12s, 2nd Flour £21 15s, Oatmeal £17 10s, Barleymeal £12 12s, Egyptian meal £13 13s, Indian meal £13 4s. [per ton]
