Dungarvan Observer 26 January 1918

Ireland’s Food Supply

‘A resolution was received from the City Hall, Dublin, which pointed at the absolute necessity for retaining all the food in the country, and asking the council to furnish information as to the quantities of food and of the different classes of food in their district.
Mr. Byrne - The working classes are not at all properly treated as regards their food supply.  There is no one to look after the interest of the labourer.  What is the working man going to do if all the food is shipped out of the country?  It is a shame, and I would advise every working man in the town to go to the station and if he sees there is any food being sent out…let him prevent it and let the people see that he is not going to starve.
A resolution of a similar character was received from Cork Corporation…The clerk was directed to supply the information requested and to send same to the proper quarters’.
