A few days ago a regatta took place at New Quay. Mr O’Connell Esq., M.P. acted as commodore, and he and John Scott, of Cahercon, Esq., both subscribed 10/s towards the amusements. The sailing and rowing matches were excellent.
The chief race for hookers was won by a Connemara boat, in consequence of Flaherty’s boat from the Claddagh having stranded. There was a private match between Mr Scott and Mr J. Hynes with their canoes, which was won by Mr Hynes. Mr O’Connell and Mr Scott remained a week and enjoyed the hospitality of Mr J. Hynes.
