Fashionable Intelligence

Carlow Sentinal, November 14th 1874.

Lord and Lady Rathdonnell and suite have arrived at Moyle, Carlow, from Drumere (?), county Louth.
Mr. Kavanagh, M.P., left Kingstown on Monday for England.
Dowager Lady Wolsely and suite arrived in Dublin on Thursday from England.
Calls to the Bar ----Amongst the gentlemen called to the Bar, at the sitting of the Court of Chancery on Monday, we observe the name of an esteemed young Carlow gentleman, Philip Henry Bagenal, Esquire, A.B., Oxford, second surviving son of the late Philip Henry Bagenal, Esquire, of Bennekerry, in this county. We sincerely wish Mr. Bagenal every success in the honourable profession he has chosen, and which judging from his high literary attainments he is well qualified to adorn.
A Royal Marriage ----In Bonapartist circles mention is made of a projected marriage between the Prince Imperial and the daughter of the Grand Duchess Maria of Russia.

The above is a true and accurate transcript of the original document.

The Rathdonnells were coming from Drumcar, Co Louth - probably to check out the state of Moyle as its previous owner, Col. Kane Bunbury (uncle of Lord Rathdonnell) had died 10 days earlier aged 97.

Mr Kavanagh was presumably the Incredible Mr Kavanagh about whom I have written here:

Turtle Bunbury
