Where was Mise le Meas?

Blackrock College Sports Day and as can be seen anyone who was anything to the old Alma Mater was there.

When then was mise le meas?

While some clearly came with flexible plans as to the rest of the day, and the night, most were there to watch the cream of the Irish educational system try their hand at "track and field sports". Tea and sandwiches were served in the quadrangle, and all agreed it was a most splendid event. In a week when we have loyal visitors, it made one proud that the old "Kingstown" habits lived on, quipped a member of the local constabulary, who was on door-duty to prevent Bob Geldof entering the area.
