DUBLIN CITY BOYS LEARN TO SEE LIFE FROM THE COUNTRYMAN'S ANGLE

Over sixty boys from Dublin, organised by Comhairle le Leas

Oige, have returned recently from their first annual camp at Rockwell College, near Cashel, Co. Tipperary, Ireland.

The venture was en outstanding success from every point of view. Two chaplains accompanied the party and each day was etarted with Mass and Holy Communion. Confessions were heard each morning.

Boys and leaders saw each other in a new light—more scope for real leadership; more responsibilities for the boy captains. City boys came to the Irish countryside in MIC of its richest settings, saw the wheat in harvest; the turf saved ; and many crops that only "k grew in shops before. They made friends with farmers and came face to face with mountains and rivers well known on school maps, with Cashel of the Kings and many monuments of their forefathers' fight to keep the Faith. In the adjoining column is an announcement that may attract some of the boys who are still rejoicing in their memories of Rockwell Camp. An agricultural college has been opened for the training of the next generation of farmers near the diocesan seminary of Clogher. Can Rockwell produce any foundation students?
