A large schooner arrived in Kinvara during the week with a cargo of 200 tons of artificial manure for Mr Martin Coen, merchant, Gort. A large quantity of timber is piled on the quays belonging to Mr Mitchell, Saw Mills, Gort. It has been carried in from Finvara, Co Clare and Derrykeel, Gort. About four cargoes are now awaiting shipment to Liverpool and one ship is loading.
Mr Bartly Bermingham, The Quay, Kinvara, has opened a coal yard where best house coal can be had at moderate prices, which is a great boon to the poor people in the district.
