§ 12. Mr. WATERSON
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the Ardfert Co-operative Society's premises have been searched, and under what authority; and for what purpose was one of the horses shot?
§ Sir H. GREENWOOD
The premises of the Co-operative Creamery at Ardfert were searched for arms and ammunition and for persons evading arrest. On the 5th instant a party of police were ambushed at Ardfert. Some of the attackers were seen to run towards a stable, and it was thought that they had taken cover within. The police approached the stable and fired through the door and on entering found that a horse had been shot.
