Entertainment at Lismore

For the purpose of providing pensions for the Jubilee Nurses in Ireland in aid of the Queen’s Institute for District Nursing, a grand variety entertainment was held in the New Hall, Lismore, under the kind patronage of their Graces the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. The Duchess of Devonshire and Lady Blanche Cobhold and her daughter Pamela, Lady Rachel Stuart, Lord and Lady Bentick, were present from Lismore Castle, and the hall was full on the occasion, and the entertainment proved a most successful one from every standpoint. The programme consisted of a play in four acts entitled: ‘The Princess and the Monster’, presented by the Camogie Choral and Dramatic Society, a fairy phantasy by a troupe of children and a display by the Lismore Gymnastic Club. Various items were introduced into the play and fairy scenes. Irish step dancing and the Irish pipes, banjo duets and songs. At the interval her Grace the Duchess of Devonshire addressing the audience availed of the opportunity of thanking Dr D Healy, M.O., for the use of the hall…She also thanked the following: - Mrs Kate O’Connell (organizer), Mr James Goulding, Mr & Mrs Guest, Mr Roe, Mr Horace Villiers-Stuart, and the many friends who have helped, as well as all those who have provided such an excellent entertainment.
