A spinning wheel of curious construction and very neat workmanship was
exhibited on Monday last to the Ladies’ Association in the Court-house of
Ennis. It is made to have eight persons work at it, and, we understand, fully
answers the purpose. The maker is James RO*A*E, who resides in the town of
Gort.
