The bride was handsomely attired in a suit of white silk with wreath and veil and carried a bouquet of chrysanthemums. She was given away by Mr. John Casey and was attended by Miss Kathleen Casey whilst Mr. Brendan Morrissey acted as best man. After the ceremony the guests motored to Bay Roberts and environs and thence proceeded to All Hallow's Hall where a reception was held. Following the reception a dance was held and a pleasant time enjoyed by all those who had attended the wedding ceremony. The bride was the recipient of many handsome and valuable presents, including many large cheques. The gifts in themselves show how highly Mrs. Morrissey was esteemed by all who knew her. In the past she has been noted for her pleasant appearance and smile of welcome; and we hope that in the future her life may be as bright as she has endeavoured to make the past of those with whom she has been associated. The whole community joins in felicitations and in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Morrissey many happy years of wedded life.
