Waterford Standard 15 September 1888

Helvick Regatta

Mr. Villiers-Stuart, Dromana, gave a regatta at Helvick, on Wednesday last, his birthday.  All the tenantry attended.  Mr. Stuart’s sons arranged the programme for the several events.  An address of welcome written in Irish was read by one of the pupils of the Mweelahorna National School and replied to by Mr. Stuart. The children were entertained most hospitably.  Mr Stuart subscribed £2.2.0 to the Cunnigar Races, which came off on the same day.  The drive to Helvick from Dungarvan was a most enjoyable one, and to those who came in Mr. Greene’s yacht Vesper, by sea, a delightful trip was afforded.  Mr. Stuart deserves the best thanks of all, not only for the kindness and consideration which prompted him to promote such amusements, but also for the friendly relations which exist between himself and the tenantry on the Dromana estate.
