As Boon as the euchre tournament was over refresh mentß were handed round and the dancing began in full swinf. Songs and recitations were given after eaoh dance. The secretary (Mr Freeman) gave the Irish jig in a manner not to bo forgotten.

A meeting was held after Mass on Sunday at the Catholic Church to consider a pro, posal to erect a new church to replace the present or>e.

This proposal was heartily agreed to, and no less than £80 was promised each year, so that in five years' time tbe new church can be built free of debt. Mr F. Fahey and Mr T.
