“200 rebels have encamped at Kilmoon Co Meath & will evidently stop there for night

Handed in at Dundalk. 7.50 pm. 27 April for I.G.

For I.G. The Castle Recd 9.10

OC. Troops Drogheda has just telephoned to me that 200 rebels have encamped at Kilmoon Co Meath and will evidently stop there for night. I have wired information to U. Navan. I am occupying rooms at Dundalk Railway Station with O.C. Troops Dundalk & have been acting in conjunction with him for past few days making all necessary arrangements. Have now been informed that fourteen rebels are on a hill near Dunleer 12 miles from Dundalk & firing shots in the air. A military officer & soldiers hold the railway bridge at Dunleer & can deal with any situation which may arise. Dundalk is so far normal & is strongly patrolled.
