Bicycle Permit - Ceadunas Rothair
Kiltimagh Railway Museum, County Mayo
Oglaigh na hEireann paper Permit, 61/2" x 5," dated 11/10/1922, authorizing Patrick Martin John McDonagh to ride a bicycle for a period of one month from 11/10/22, between Kiltimagh and Swinford, during Civil War, in 1922, signed by local Captain, Jack Benson.
Permit needed to be renewed on a monthly basis to enable cyclist to travel within the area without harassment from Free State Forces.
Mr. McDonagh operated a business outside Kiltimagh and needed to be able to transport goods between the two towns, hence the need for the permit.
