THE MCCARTHY APPEAL FUND, DUNGOURNEY

Three weeks ago the McCarthy family of Dungourney, consisted of thirteen members, known to be decent, sober, hardworking, trustworthy, most affectionate to one another, and, as a family really excellent. The influenza struck down ten, and has killed seven. A fund, to relieve the overwhelming load of debt on the McCarthy’s, was opened in Dungourney, at a large and representative public meeting on Sunday. In addition to the expenses consequent on illnesses and burials, there will be money needed to restore the survivors to their former excellent health and give them a fresh start in life. What kind heart can picture the remnants of this once fine family sitting round the lonesome fireside and not feel for them? Seven vacant chairs! Dungourney will do its part generously, but it cannot do enough. Subscriptions are earnestly invited, and even the smallest will be thankfully acknowledged by either of the undersigned, who were unanimously chosen at the public meeting.

MICHAEL O’BRIEN R.D.C, Sandyhill, Dungourney.

P. IVERS RIGNNEY, Chairman East Cork N.T.A, Dungourney.
