Last month was witnessed in Sydney the inauguration of a branch of the Cumann na mBan. The meeting, held for the purpose in the rooms of the I.N.A., Station House, was a very enthusiastic and successful one. After the aims and objects of the association were explained, it was decided by the ladies to place themselves under the patronage of Ethna Carberry, and that the branch be known as An Craob Ethna Carberry (the Ethna Carberry branch). The following ladies were elected office-bearers;
President – Miss B. O’Grady
Vice-Presidents – Miss M. Ryan and Miss Sheehan
Secretary – Miss Amy Ryan
Treasurer – Miss May Maloney
Committee; Mrs Cheetham, Miss Madeline Sheehy, Miss Mary Organ and Miss Kathleen Weber.
The names of Mrs. J. Murphy and Miss Darcy have since been added to the committee.
When the ban has been lifted from the holding of meetings, the Cumann na mBan will meet in the I.N.A. rooms (sixth floor), Station House, at 8 p.m. sharp on Wednesdays and special attention will be given the Irish language, industry, literature, &c. Information as to membership can be had from the secretary Miss A. Ryan, I.N.A., sixth floor, Station House.
