On 18 July 1975 the Irish Department of Education wrote to William P O’Brien, of 17 Victoria Street, Armagh, asking him to set the exam paper for the Intermediate Certificate French exam of 1977. He was offered a fee of £38.50 for setting the paper, consultation and revision and correcting the proofs. He posted the paper to the department on 31 July and received an acknowledgement on 5 August 1975.
Mr O’Brien was a member of the Thomond Archaeological Society and, on 6 December 1975, paid it £5.50 in a cheque drawn on his account with the Bank of Ireland in Armagh.
Some day, somebody may want to know that.
