Senator P. J. Keohane

A NATIONAL BEREAVEMENT Our Irish correspondent writes :

The death of Senator P. J. Keohane can be described only as a national bereavement. The news reaches me as I close my letter, and

I am overcome by the emotions which it raises.

This noble Irishman and upstanding Catholic leader, managing director of the publishing firm of M. H. Gill and Son, Dublin, and the Catholic was right-hand man of the national leader in many a great work, charitable or national, and Mr de Valera hardly could be hurt more by the loss of any o: his friends.

America and Australia all the

mission hear of P.J.K.'s passing with grief, wherever there is an Irish missionary or religious house.

I cannot say more; "the Senator," as we called him, was one who did more good works in secret than ever can be told. Go tiddanaidh Din troraire ar a anam.

Charitable Bequests


Mrs Mary Catherine Stewart, of Greenock, who left £11,590, after other bequests, leaves £500 to the Little Sisters of the Pool', Greenock, and when a number of personal legacies have been disbursed the residue is to be paid to the parish priest of St. Mary's Catholic Church, Greenock.
