A meeting of this Féir Committee was held on Sunday last in Donabate, Mr P J Kettle presiding. Correspondence from the adjudicator of the school competitions and decided to start examinations at once, so as to have finished before the first Féir day (17th inst).

Eoghan O’Neacthan has been selected for the literary competitions, and a large amount of business in connection with the Féir concert which will be held in the Town Hall on the 24th was dealt with ; also arrangements as to tents, platforms.

It was decided to hold the next committee meeting in Skerries on Sunday next at 5 0’clock when the stewards will be selected to take charge of the different arrangements on both days of the Féir, and it is unnecessary to say that every member of the committee should be present, as to a very large extent the of the Féir depends on those In charge. Secretaries of branches can render an amount of assistance by seeing that their competitors are at their posts when called on.

The time table has been so arranged as to have 4 different competitions going on continually during the day from about 1 0’clock until 6.30.
