The Kildare Observer 9th November 1895

Naas Young Men’s Christian Association

The opening meeting of the Naas Branch of the Young Men’s Christian Association, for the Session of 1895-’96 took place in the New Schoolroom, on Wednesday evening last – the Rev H.B. Kennedy, the President, being in the chair – when a most interesting lecture on “Plant Life” was delivered by Mr Cooke Trench, D.L. There was a fairly good attendance of members and their friends, who all appeared to thoroughly enjoy the evening’s entertainment. Mr Trench illustrated his lecture with specimens of various grasses, ferns, &c, and kept his audience absorbed the whole time, though some of them had evidently expected rather a dry evening. At the close of the lecture, which was seconded by Mr Lanphier, and most enthusiastically passed; and after a few words in reply from Mr Trench, the meeting ended.The subject for next Wednesday will be a lecture on “Three Mad Poets,” by the Rev W. Fitzgerald, M.A.
