At a meeting of the Committee of the Cork School of Music
on Thursday last, Mr Thomas Crosbie, who occupied the chair,
referred to the loss the school had sustained by the recent
death of Capt Pigott Beamish, who had been chairman of the
Committee for so many years, and testified to his extensive
and accurate musical knowledge, and to the care which [sic]
he watched over its finances and to the liberality displayed
by him in connection with them.  On the motion of Mr Robert
Walker, seconded by the Rev E Gaynor, a vote of condolence
with the family of the deceased was unanimously passed.


At the recent examination in Dublin for boy copyists the
following young lads took very creditable positions:
Masters Michael D Murphy and Michael Hayre, both of
Cloghoola National School, Millstreet.  Being their first
examination makes it more creditable to their teacher,
Mr James Dennehy, and also to the boys themselves.  Mr
James Meade also passed in a good position as the result
of private study.  This is the second son of Mr Thomas
Meade, of Millstreet ...

The Cork Examiner, 23 June 1899


Yesterday evening (Thursday) a labourer named Denis Crowley had a narrow
escape from drowning in Kinsale. It appears he had some drink taken, and
the day being rather warm he divested himself of his clothes on the Long
quay slip, about three o'clock in the afternoon, and went and swam towards
Scilly. He is a poor swimmer, and the place being very public he was seen
in the water by numbers of people who soon found out from his antics that
he was unable to swim well and that inevitably he would be drowned if
assistance would not be rendered to him. A fisherman named Warren,
belonging to Scilly proceeded in a boat, and Head-constable Hobson and
Constables Leary and Baggs in another boat to the spot where the man was,
and after some difficulty succeeded in hauling him on board the boat in an
exhausted condition. His clothes being procured, he dressed himself and
was taken to the constabulary barracks, but was immediately liberated, and
will have to answer at a future date for his action on this occasion.
