Once again on that memorable 15th Aug, a goodly number assembled to celebrate the "patron," as was the custom of our forefathers; though now commemorated in a different style by members’ of the committee of the Football Club. The sports carried on, though not of the grandest description, were, in their way, a source of joy to many—especially to those who had returned from a foreign school, to see danced with due honour the famous gig and reel , while floating on the breeze were the most cherished flags—the Irish and American —the Emerald a bit loftier than the Stars and Stripes. The other feats; which comprised jumping, cycling, etc., were very closely contested owing to the excellent, supervision of the judge and handicapper, Mr Timothy Ti Leahy. We offer our heartiest thanks to all who have in any way contributed to our sports; and we trust that on the next 15th August Knockanure will have attained to a —? place in the athletic line.

Irish Examiner 1841-current, Wednesday, November 12, 1845; Page: 3


The following interesting letter from the Merchant Prince of India to the Apostle of Temperance in Ireland, was presented by Mr. LEAHY to the Rev. Gentleman. Mr. Leahy, we understand, an artist of talent, and a native of Cork. He has been absent for the last twenty-five years. This is a tribute of high respect to our illustrious countryman, Father MATHEW. In India as in Ireland, he is equally beloved.

M Y DEAR FATHER MATHEW—The bearer of this, Mr. Leahy, is commissioned by me to undertake the painting of your Portrait, which you have been so kind as to promise to sit for. Mr. Leahy is, I believe already known to you, and I feel assured that he will, under the circumstance, fulfil his pleasing task in a manner that will do justice to his subject —I have already endeavoured to express the high honour and gratification I felt at making your personal acquaintance, and I am now doubly anxious that my countrymen should behold adorning the walls of my house, the Portrait of the man who has redeemed his Country from the national stigma, under which it was held so long.

" Believe me, my dear Father Mathew, with sentiments of the highest esteem, to remain ever your attached friend,


" St. George Hotel, London, Nov. 1, 1845.

Mostly women were taken from Ireland and Scotland by the Nordic warriors some 1,000 years ago and settled in Iceland, putting down roots on the North Atlantic island. New DNA mapping has now revealed that these Irish women did not play as much of an influence in the genetic make-up of modern-day Iceland as the Vikings who brought them there.
