Published: 28 June 1913

The St Vincent de Paul Bazaar was opened at the Rotunda today by Patrick Brady, MP. The bazaar, which raises money for Dublin’s poor is in its 63rd year. The bazaar was well attended, and the gaily dressed crowd had much to enjoy at the twenty-three different stalls on site. In his speech, Mr Brady praised the work of St Vincent de Paul in relieving the distress of individuals and families who had fallen on hard times, and encouraged those in attendance to give freely. In 1912, St Vincent de Paul worked with 18,357 families across the nation to relieve their hardship.
