Service of Dedication
Special memorial services were conducted in Cootehill Presbyterian Church on Sunday last by Rev. Dr. M’Kee, C.F. After the morning service a handsome white marble tablet, erected by the congregation to the memory of the men connected with the church who felled and those who served in the Great War, was unveiled by Colonel Lord Farnham, D.S.O. In a brief address Lord Farnham paid glowing tributes to the bravery, endurance and cheerfulness of all ranks under the most trying circumstances, and sympathised with the relatives of those who had fallen in the fight. The congregation stood while his Lordship read the tablet inscription, including the 22 names engraved thereon. The tablet is surmounted by a striking trophy of crossed swords design, with scroll bring the motto “The path of duty is the way to glory.” Rev. W. M. Henry, pastor loci, on behalf of the congregation thanked Lord Farnham for his kindness in coming at considerable inconvenience to be present on the occasion. He also referred in appreciative terms to the presence of the Countess of Dartrey. The collection on behalf of the Belfast War Memorial Hostels Fund met with a liberal response.
