Schubert Song Recital
‘A Schubert Song Recital under the auspices of the Cork Municipal School of Music, was given last Sunday afternoon in the School of Art. It was an exceptionally interesting performance. The brief lecture which preceded gave a review of the brief, struggling life and rich creations of the great lyrical composer…Mrs Stockley sang her songs with great finish and exquisite style… All the accompaniments were played by Frau. T. Fleischmann in her usual faultless style. Altogether it was a first-class recital, a rare artistic treat for those who are interested in music in Cork.

SHOTS FIRED AT CORK NEWSPAPER MANAGER
‘Mr. Denis McGrath, manager of the Cork Examiner, was shot and seriously wounded about 7 o’clock last evening, as he was entering his private house at Blackrock Road, Cork.
Mr. McGrath took a tram home from the Examiner office and had entered the gate of house when four men rushed forward and fired three shots. Two took effect. One bullet struck him on the right arm above the elbow and inflicted a compound fracture. A second penetrated the back over the kidneys. The assailants ran off.
Mr. McGrath was able to walk into his residence, and Doctors Dudon and Shanahan were summoned. These arrived very promptly, and Mr. McGrath was conveyed to the South Infirmary, where an operation was performed, which is reported as successful. Other operations will be performed this morning. Mr. McGrath was reported late last night to be getting on as well as could be expected.’
