      We are officially informed that a Hospice, under the control of the Catholic
      Bishops of Ireland, will be opened and ready for the reception of infirm
      clergy, at Moyne Park, Ballyglenin, Co. Galway, on Thursday, the 30th September
      next. This institution, beautifully situated in an immense demesne, will be in
      charge of the Fathers of the Order of St. Camillus de Lellis, who had to fly
      from their noble work in France during the recent persecution of the clergy in
      that country.

      Hi Holiness Pope Pius X has been pleased to appoint the Most Rev Dr
      MacCormack titular Archbishop of Nisibim (?) in the East. The dignity has been
      eminently merited by sincerity of character and lifelong unselfish devotion to duty.

      The annual excursion still absorbs the minds of the Athenry people, and
      things have progressed considerably during the last week. Queenstown and back will
      be the days outing, and probably 500 people will leave Athenry and the
      surrounding districts on the last Sunday in July.

      ----------

      Widespread regret was evident in Athenry on hearing of the melancholy death
      of Captain Quinlan, brother of the popular medical officer, Dr. Quinlan. Only
      last summer Captain Quinlan visited Athenry, spending a few weeks with his
      brother at Cahegoyan Park, and during his short visit to Athenry he made a host
      of friends.
