“Meeting in Scariff serious, is secretly organized and meant to rouse East Clare”

Wire from C.I. Ennis. Handed in at 4-50a.m. Received 9-25a.m. 29/4/16.

Have been at Killaloe, regard meeting in Scariff serious, is secretly organized and meant to rouse (?) East Clare. Police alone will be useless, if no police (gtoeam?) barracks will be attacked and possibly banks. Saw military Limerick tonight, cannot send men. Garrison Commander Queenstown could not promise men. One machine gun and 50 men would suffice. Request instructions early if meeting is to be prevented. Police could arrive early on Sunday.
