Leinster Leader 20 March 1915


The Clerk read the following letter received by the Chairman from the Protestant Dean of Kildare: –

Dear Mr. Devle,- It was with great pleasure that I read yesterday in the “Irish Times” of the splendid reception giver to the troops last week in Athy. It corresponded with what I had previously heard from some of them of the kindly way in which they had been treated. I feel very proud of the town with which so many happy years of my life were associated. I was also delighted to see from what you said that so many had joined the colours in Athy and its neighbourhood. It is pleasant to see that South Kildare realises the immense crisis with which we are faced. With all good wishes, – Yours Sincerely,

                            EDWARD H. WALLER
