“Clean Literature”


New Dungarvan Parish Committee


Rev. Father Egan presided at the inaugural meeting of the above held meeting in St. Marys Boy’s Club… there was a large attendance of intending members.  Dr. M. F. Moloney was chairman and Mr. T.Y. Power, hon secretary P. Dunne and Michael Flynn were hon Treasurers.

Father Egan, who has a keen interest in the working of the Literature Service Guild that has been operating in the town for the past twelve months, Fr. Egan felt that with such a committee he had no fear for the success of the branch.  He drew attention to the advantages to be derived from the circulation of clean literature in their midst, and hoped the good work carried on through the book box in the church and the Literature Service Guild would be greatly augmented, and in the future at least one Catholic newspaper or magazine would find its way into the homes on Sundays.  He paid a tribute to the local newsagents and booksellers, who he said, were most careful in the selection of literature they sold to the public.  He thought the Executive Committee would be acting in the strict censorship of all pictures shown locally, and finally he appealed to all those present to use their influence in introducing as many as possible to become members, so that  large numbers may receive the many spiritual favours granted by the Holy Sea to all those who help. 

Supt. Murray C.G said he was most interested in working for the society, and from a moral standpoint he promised to co-operate fully with the committee in the good work they had undertaken.  The committee were: Mrs. Gough Dower, O.B.E., Misses M. Forde, M. Fuge, M. Casey, E.M. Anthony, E. Brennan, Messrs John F. Moloney; Arthur Glynn, Michael Keane, Thomas Casey, Dan Cooney and William O’Meara.
