Oh Monday evening, St. Paul's Hall, Qamaru, was filled to capacity for the congregational farewell social tendered to the Rev. Brian and Mrs. Kilroy and Mrs. Kilroy, sen., by St. Paul's Church, and tho presence of such, a largo gathering was a fine tribute to tho great work done by the guests while residing, in Oamaru, states the "Otago Daily Times." The Rev. W. W. French occupied the chair. Tho Mayor (Mr. M. F. E. Cooney), although expressing regret at bidding farewell to Mr. Kilroy, stated that he was glad of tho opportunity to acknowledge publicly on behalf of the citizens the worth of the three guests as members of the Oamaru community. Mr. Kilroy had associated himself with all worthy organisations in the town. He was a wonderfully gifted speaker, and Mr. Cooney referred to his work among tho young people, both of the church and the community generally. There were few better tasks that a man could take up than helping the youth, and the community owed a great debt to Mr. Kilroy for his services. The Mayor said he was confident that Mr. Kilroy's oratory would make a great impression in Wellington, as his speaking came direct from the heart. On behalf of the citizens he congratulated Mr. Kilroy on his call, 'and wished tho three guests success in tho Capital City. Numerous addresses appreciative of Mr. Kilroy's work in Oamaru and of his influence on the youth of the community were delivered, and presentations were made to Mrs. Kilroy and to Mrs. Kilroy, sen.
