Nothing much to report this morning, between 2 and 3 pm yesterday, parties of military came from direction of Dollymount and were placed at Amiens St, Store Street, Customs House Square, Talbot Street to Gardiner Street. They warned all people off the street and those who refused to leave were fired on. Two men were either wounded or killed in Store Street and taken away in the ambulance. Military are also posted in vicinity of FitzGibbon Street and firing occurred there, but I have no details. The Police are still confined to Store Street Station.
