Record of Famous Irish College

Talk of being up-to-date! Opening at random the pages of The Rockwell Annual for the present year, we light upon a photograph: Maid and Mercury—the flying boat with its pick-a-back 'plane about which the newspapers have been informing, in recent days, on account of Mercury's Atlantic flight. That photograph is one of some 120 examples of camera craft contained within the covers of this handsome Irish year-book. The majority are portraits, singly or in groups, of past or present Rockwell students.

To various walks of life the famous college at Cashel sends forth its young men, a large number to the high destiny of priesthood: twenty-five past students were ordained at last summer's ordinations. The Army, the Law, industry, sport--in these and many other fields of service Rockwell men are to the fore.

But the Annual is by no means simply a domestic record. It holds also the proof that among their alumni the Holy Ghost Fathers have poets and essayists, descriptive writers, humorists. A very good account of themselves, in the aggregate, these aspirants to authorship give by their contributions in this 1938 issue, even though the editor finds their work not quite up to last year's standard.
