When the news reached Kinvara on Monday evening that Mr Thomas P Corless, president U.I.L headed the poll for co-option at the annual meeting in Gort, the greatest enthusiasm prevailed. A huge tar-barrel was set ablaze in the Square, and from the top of Newtown castle a great blaze could be seen for miles around.

In the patriotic village of Crushoa a similar scene could be witnessed, and Dungora castle had a number of fires lighting on every side, which showed how the people appreciated the act of the District Council.
