The Very Rev. Fr. Mathew, being on a visit at Kilcornan, the hospirable mansion of N. Redington, Esq., M P., administered the total abstinence pledge on the 21st and 22nd ult., to upwards of eight hundred postulants.
Many from the neighbouring parishes of Oranmore, Ballinacourty, Ballinderreen, &c., who lost the opportunity of approaching him while in Galway and Loughrea, took advantage of his propitious visit to Kilcornan. The people of this locality have been extremely fortunate.
