KILDARE EMIGRANTS HAVE NEW CLUBROOM

KILDARE EMIGRANTS

HAVE NEW CLUBROOM

The Kildare Association and its members take a very active part in Irish affairs in London. Its members, who come from all parts of Kildare, meet regularly at the dances, socials and outings organised by the Association.
Assistance is given to new emigrants from Kildare in obtaining employment, the sale of Irish goods is fostered, and generally, Kildare and Irish interests are advanced in every possible way.
The Association recently sought assistance from many of the funding Kildare concerns and thanks to Irish Ropes Ltd., Newbridge, and Wallpapers Ltd., Kildare, the new clubroom acquired at Alexandria Hotel, Clapham Common, London, S.W.4, will be laid with Tintawn carpets and decorated with Kildare wallpaper.
The association hopes to invite in the very near future a noted Kildare man to perform the official opening of the clubroom.
