The Patriotic Assurance Company of Ireland was founded considerably over
half a century ago by a number of local merchants, and its operations are
confined to this country alone. Its large capital of £1,500,000 is the
property of resident Irish shareholders, and its earnings, as a consequence,
obtain circulation and give employment at home.
LIFE DEPARTMENT - The rates of premium for Life Assurance are the most
moderate, consistent with safety. For example : at age 20
(non-participating) an annual premium of £20 10s. 5d. will insure with this
Company the sum of £1,250, payable at death - however soon that may happen
- while under the mutual tables of twenty companies the same premium would
only assure £1,050, and with nineteen other companies the same premium
would only assure £1,000. Thus what are equivalent to immediate bonuses of
from £200 to £250 may be secured.
ENDOWMENT ASSURANCES - At age 25, an annual premium of £11 16s. 8d. will
assure the sum of £500, payable at death - however soon that may happen -
with the additional advantage, that should the assured live to 63, the £500
will be paid over to himself.
ENDOWMENTS FOR CHILDREN - are effected, the amount being payable in the
event of the life named attaining a certain age - usually 21 - the whole of
the premiums paid being returnable, should the child die before that age.
For a child aged 2 years next birthday, an annual payment of £4 3s. 10d.
will secure £100 on attaining the age of 21; or in the event of death
before attaining that age, all the premiums received will be returned.
LOANS - granted on real estate, and on life estate with policy of assurance,
at moderate rates of interest. Preliminary agreements free of charge.
FIRE DEPARTMENT - Insurances against loss by Fire may be effected with
this Company on private dwelling houses, and on furniture therein, at the
minimum rates of 1s. 6d. and 2s. per cent, including china, glass, musical
instruments, prints and other perishable goods.
Insurances on Warehouses, Shops, Merchandize, Mills, and Factories may be
effected at current rates.

water bleeding rocks, and may be tamped with water ; it requires no hard

blasted ; Dynamite being a plastic substance, its cartridges may be put into
the boreholes with safety, and pressed so as to completely fill up their
irregularities, which is absolutely necessary in blasting to obtain the best

Assured with future Bonus Additions, requiring no care and no payments to
keep it in force, and carrying the specially High Value and Privileges of
such a document.
CLASS B. - The Bonuses in this Class are applied so as to give the largest
possible Benefits to those who attain an average time of life. This has
resulted in Additions of an amount absolutely Unattainable under Any Other

the Division then to be made.
