RIC Ennis: “Some military at Gort desirable. Police supply of ammunition small.”

Copy of telegram.

  1. From County Inspector, RIC Ennis
    Situation round Galway unchanged. Am informed Sinn Feiners are commandeering motor cars and food. Some military at Gort desirable. Police supply of ammunition small. Could some be sent here. Request a wire authorizing me to obtain petrol. As no letters reach me from Dublin should I cease posting official letters to you.
  2. From Inspector General RIC to CI Ennis. Your wire was received. Assistance is being sent to County Galway. Hold on at Gort. Ammunition is being sent to you. GOC in Ireland authorizes you to requisition any petrol you require for Government service on Payment. Post no more official letters for the present.
