Men endeavoured to force stores of Ellen Caslys house Cahersherkin in sub district of Ennistymon about midnight last night demanding a gun from her son Thomas who replied by firing a shot through the back door at attacking party. I cannot say if any of them were wounded. They also broke 3 panes in a window […] robbery of arms.

No arrests.
