The Sisters of Mercy’s concert and bazaar at Kinvara came off on Thursday the 2nd inst. Both were a great success, and a proof of the popularity of the nuns. The Misses and Master Corless, the Burlington, Dublin; the Misses Regan, Miss Burke, Lisdoonvarna; Miss McCuley, Miss Delia Corless, Kinvara; the Misses Kennedy and the Misses Sheahan, Gort, contributed their share to the day’s pleasure. Any notice of the concert would be incomplete if one were to omit reference to the successful part taken by the gentlemen, clerical and lay, who kindly gave their services in the cause of charity. Father O’Donohue, Balyvaughan, and Father Nestor, Clarenbridge, sang, and so did Fathers Sweeny and Tully. The lay element was well represented by Dr. Glynn, Gort, and Mr Hewson, Tyrone, who both sustained the role of first class vocalists.
