Whist Drive in Kildare
The whist drive held in the Club House Hotel, Kildare, on Wednesday night last, was a tremendous success, not only from the financial point of view, but also that of entertainment. Over one hundred and fifty guests were present, which included parties from Naas, Newbridge, Athy, Monasterevan, Maynooth and most of the smaller towns, and every available space of the lower rooms was filled to capacity. There was keen competition among the gentlemen players for the very attractive prize offered by Mr. Doyle, the horse trainer, who gave a yearling colt as first prize and of which there was a very fine drawing in the main hall. The scores came out very high, the winner, Mr. J. Mulvin, Edenderry, coming first with 189; Mr. J. Behan, Ballysax, second; and Mr. M. Regan won the sealed, 146. With the ladies, the top score was 180 and was held by Miss B. M. Noone Edenderry; Miss Moloney, Kildare coming second with 178. The lady’s sealed prize was won by Miss May Hayde, Enfield, the score called being 156. Immediately after the play, tea and refreshments were served by the Committee, which were thoroughly enjoyed, as there was no break through the game.
