      Hello all,

      I have no interest in the individuals mentioned in the pieces below, and have
      no additional information for any of these individuals mentioned below. The
      Tuam Herald of this era, 1909-1911, was printed weekly, on Saturdays. The film
      of this newspaper has information from 1909 and 1911 only. The following has
      been transcribed by Jim McNamara. Any and all comment welcome. JPMTCC@...

      Best regards,

      The Catholic Who's Who. This is an admirable work for Catholics, giving a
      very complete and comprehensive account of their principal co-religionists in
      the three kingdoms. It is a most interesting and reliable compilation brought
      together with great care. It is well printed, and has already since its
      publication only a few months ago ran into a second edition - the best proof of
      popularity and success. The author is Sir Francis Burnand, the distinguished
      writer. The contents are varied, including amongst other things, a list oof boys'
      and girls' schools. The publishers are Burns and Oates, the well known
      Catholic publishers of London, and the price 3s 6d.
