      THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL
      Galway, Monday, August 2, 1824

      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.
