Two Items from The Republican Press Fund (of which I know little about). It appears to have been a fund for the setting up of a Republican Press similar to what was later the Irish Press.
The first item is a Share application, which is addressed to Erskine Childers and Charles Murphy TD. The second item is a note refunding the money which suggests it was unsuccessful.
The Committee desire to thank you for your generous aid in the matter, and know that you regret as keenly as themselves the want of success which attended their efforts to promote a Republican Press
The names on this refund are fairly interesting from an Irish Historical viewpoint. Austin Stack is listed as Chairman, Mary Alden Childers and C. O’Murcada are listed as Hon Treasurer.

Anyone know anymore about the fund?
