15 January 1921

William McGrath, a Dublin barrister, was murdered in the city with no suspects identified. The authorities said that McGrath hadn’t been engaged in politics but that he was working as an acting county judge.

The opposition to the increased price of telephone calls continued and the London Chamber of Commerce demanded an investigation into the matter. The Postmaster General said that it was the intention of the Government to ensure that the service was self-financing.

The Government confirmed that it was still not prepared to give a date for the publication of the Strickland Report which looked into the burning of Cork.
