Dr. Conroy, Bishop of Ardagh; Monsignor Woodlock, Rector of the Catholic University; Isaac Butt, M.P.; Mitchell Henry, M.P.; John George MacCarthy, M.P.". - "The bishops expressed their desire for a Catholic University pure and simple, independent of the University of Dublin and Trinity College. Mr. Butt expressed his belief that this would be impracticable, and that it would be comparatively easy to obtain the incorporation and endowment of a Catholic College in the University of Dublin of the plan suggested by the Pastoral of the bishops in October 1871, and worked out in the Irish University Bill of 1876". Last two pages blank. In manuscript hand on verso: "Conference with Bishops".
