No. 469 NAI DFA Unregistered Papers

Note of telephone discussion between Francis T. Cremins and John V. Fahy (Dublin)

Dublin, 7 November 1930

The 'Irish Times' of today contains the text of a long protest signed by the Primate of Armagh and the Protestant Archbishop of Dublin on behalf of the Protestant minority in the Irish Free State, setting out:-

(1) that the right of appeal to the Privy Council is the only safeguard the minority has;
(2) that the present Government may not always be in office, and, if the right is now abolished, their last safeguard would be removed;
(3) referring to a deputation which waited on the President in 1929 in which a statement was presented giving their views; and finally, protesting against any question of Great Britain consenting to any limitation of the constitutional 'rights granted by the Treaty and secured by Article 66 of the Constitution'.

(Signed) J.V. Fahy
