The King of Dalkey

The King of Dalkey and the Dublin and Kingstown Railway Company

A report being generally circulated that the Dublin and Kingstown Railway Company contributed liberally to defray the expenses of the revival of this old custom, the Committee of Management regret to say such is not the fact, notwithstanding the immense increase of traffic as returned by the company’s accounts. The loss sustained by the principals in this transaction is very considerable. The committee for the present will decline any further interference in the Kingstown locality. His facetious Majesty Henry the First will issue his proclamation when and where he next intends to appear in public, which will be strictly select.
