A great demonstration was held at Kinvara on Sunday in furtherance of the object of the United Irish League. At an early hour the picturesque little town was thronged by a great concourse of people, and as each contingent arrived from surrounding parishes, ringing cheers greeted them. Clarenbridge and Rooveagh had a splendid turnout, headed by their fife and drum band, followed by an immense procession of horsemen dressed in green sashes and wearing their membership cards on their hats.
