New Fire Appliance for Cork
‘At the cost of roughly fourteen hundred pounds, a first-class modern motor fire-engine and motor pump combination, manufactured by the Leyland Company has been acquired by Cork Fire Brigade…The weight of the combination, loaded, is four tons. Fitted with a forty horse power engine, the car can travel at a high speed, the maximum probably exceeding forty miles an hour. The pumping capacity is guaranteed to be, at least, between three and four hundred gallons per minute…This new fire engine and pump combined is a very desirable acquisition to the resources of the Fire Brigade.’

Irish Week

Support Irish Industries

‘The display of Irish manufactured goods in the shops of Cork which is being made this week – Irish Week – has proved to a great extent a surprise to the general public. It has demonstrated beyond doubt that almost every article required in the country, whether in the household or the farm, is being manufactured at home, and with an increase of sentiment amongst the purchasing public as regards home production, that the few things missing could also be turned out in our own factories. In this respect it may be no harm to revert to the question of the import of goods into Cork, many of which better quality could be obtained here…The total value of goods imported from England annually being £132,000,000 - as much as could keep half a million Irishmen constantly employed if manufactured here. This does not reflect much credit on the sentiment of the people of Munster, but now under the new and sympathetic Government of the Irish people themselves a strong impetus should be given to local manufacture.’

Cork Water Supply – Another Burst
‘A large area in the centre of the city was without water for a considerable time yesterday owing to the bursting of a pipe at Paul Street. Repairs were quickly commenced, however, and completed in a few hours.’

School of Music Concert
‘The choral concert of the students of the Cork Municipal School of Music took place last evening in the Opera House, a very full house being attracted by the event. The concert was most enjoyable, a very full house being attracted by the event. The concert was most enjoyable, displaying musical resources of the finest kind. The choral singing was particularly good. A detailed notice of the event will appear in tomorrow’s issue.’
