The Duchess of Connaught’s Own Irish Canadian Rangers will visit Ireland in about two weeks. The Regiment is composed of Irish Canadians, half of them Catholics, half Protestants, and it is their desire to see the land of their forefathers on the occasion of their being in this part of the world. On arrival at Dublin they will be inspected by the Lord Lieutenant and entertained by the Lord Mayor, proceeding then to Armagh where the heads of the two churches reside. From there they will visit Belfast, Cork and Limerick. Their tour in Ireland will only last one week and will give all the men time to see their relations and friends.
