Large numbers from various districts in Galway and Clare journeyed to Kinvara on Saturday and Sunday to participate in the annual pilgrimage to St. Kieran’s Bed. at Fraugh Kieran, Duras, Kinvara.  St. Kieran’s Bed is charmingly situated close beside the silvery strand at Duras, and commands a splendid view of Galway Bay as far as the Aran Island, with the lofty Burren mountains away in the background. Hundreds of people remained all through Saturday night to do their stations on Sunday and every mode of conveyance from the old Irish jaunting car to the more modern bicycle brought its quota on Sunday. “It is a pity,” our correspondent writes, “that some local Committee would not take charge of the arrangements every year, and see that the religious side of the pilgrimage is strictly observed as its inception dates back centuries.
