The flats were opened by the Lord Mayor of Dublin. and blessed by Fr. Cormac, C.C., of the Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough Street. The entire build ing is under the care of the Society. By kindly supervisidn, encouragement in difficulties, and general practical interest in the families, the members hope to develop an atmosphere of pride and contentment in the home.
