The works of the new Dungarvan Chapel, which when finished, will be one of
the most magnificent places of Catholic worship in Ireland, have recommenced.
They have already cost the Inhabitants 2,000. The idea of erecting a Chapel on
the scale of this structure was originally suggested by the Lord of the soil.
His Grace is shortly to be applied to for a subscription, and there are
well-founded expectations that his donation will be a princely one. The style of
the architecture of the Chapel is strictly Gothic. The length is no less than
141 feet and 80 in width.
MELANCHOLY OCCURENCE - Tuesday last, a Gentleman named Lafay, of Hendrick
street, was proceeding with a friend on a jaunting-car towards Clontarf, for the
purpose of shooting, and, when arranging a double barrelled detonating gun in
the car, it unfortunately went off, and lodged the contents, a charge of shot,
in his side. The unfortunate Gentleman never spoke after the occurrence, and was
immediately removed to Jeryl-street Hospital, where, upon his arrival he was
discovered to be quite dead. -- Dublin Paper.
