Justifying the sacking of a properly appointed librarian in Mayo, because, though highly qualified, she was a Protestant, de deValera argued in June 1930: "I say the people of Mayo in a county where I think 98% of the population is Catholic are justified in insisting on a Catholic librarian". He went on to widen the issue indeed, and asserted: "A Protestant doctor ought not to be appointed as a dispensary doctor in a mainly Catholic area".
