A most successful bazaar in aid of the Convent of Kinvarra was held about the end of August. The affair concluded with athletic sports in the convent grounds. A somewhat novel and certainly most interesting incident in the ‘athletic’ contest was ‘the Sunlight Soap Washing Competition; for handsome prizes, presented by Messrs Lever Brothers. No other item on the programme produced so much excitement and amusement. There were eight young lady competitors. Miss Doolin won the first prize and Miss Hehir the second. Charity and entertainment were never more happily associated with what should prove a very fetching advertisement.
