Constable Donovan Moves to Tullamore, Co. Offaly, 1845

The Constabulary – In noticing the removal of Head Constable Donovan from Carlow to Tullamoore (sic), we feel called upon to express the high sense we have invariably entertained at his zeal and efficiency while stationed here since 1841. No individual could conduct himself with more propriety, while his diligence and unremitting attention in the discharge of his duty gained him the approbation of the local magistracy. The promotion of intelligent men is credible to the service and will be attended with good effect in pointing out to those filling subordinate ranks the value of their exemplary conduct
