June 16th – 22nd 1916

At a special meeting of the committee of Castletownroche Hurling Club, Mr R. Kiely, chairman, presiding, a vote of sincere condolence was passed to Mr James Ryan, goalkeeper, on the death of his father-in-law.

The wedding took place at the Presbyterian Church, Fermoy of Corporal Arthur Tyers, 1st Leicestershire Regiment to Adelina Patti, oldest daughter of T. C. Jackson, Bank Street, Fermoy. Rev. J. Bruce Little performed the ceremony.

The death occurred of Rev. W. O’Donovan, P.P. Kildorrery after a brief illness at the Mercy Home, Cork. He was born in 1849 and had been a priest for about forty years. The death also occurred of Hanora Higgins, late of Tallow. All persons claiming to be creditors of this lady were required to send full particulars of their claims to Mrs Margaret Raleigh of Tankardstown, Bruff, Administratrix of deceased on or before July 1st.

A most successful meeting of the ladies of Kilfinane and district was held at Doherty’s Hotel at which a branch of the Irish National Aid Association was formed. It was decided that a collection for the worthy object for which the association was founded would be held at the church gates locally and it was hoped that the people of Kilfinane and district would respond to the appeal in a generous way.

The chairman of Fermoy Urban Council informed members that a complaint had been made to him about a wire paling or fence which was erected days previously in the lower Inches walkway. It was placed too close to the river and in some parts came in on the footpath. It was both dangerous and unsightly and he did not think there was the slightest necessity for its erection. Mr O’Flynn agreed, stressing that the public had a perfect right to walk down the Inches without being stopped or interfered with. The Clerk was directed to communicate with Very Rev. Canon Barrett, on whose land the paling was and request him to have it removed.

The Most Rev. Dr Hackett, Bishop of Waterford and Lismore, formally opened the annual exhibition of the students’ work at Waterford Technical Institute. During the course of his address he drew special attention to one class which provided for a course of training for girls who proposed to enter domestic service. The training provided would also benefit them for the more honourable and responsible position of mistresses in their own homes. Large numbers visited the exhibition during the evening and also at night.

Peter O’Neill, Clerk of Fermoy Rural District Council issued a notice to well sinkers that from June 25th they would be receiving tenders for the sinking of “Deep Wells” at Curraghagalla, Glanworth East E. D. and Corbally, Glanworth West E. D. in accordance with specification which could be seen at his office. On the same date the Guardians would receive tenders for painting and colouring the wards in the fever hospital.
