Jas. Keane, Thomas Prendergast, Pat Moylon, Robert Thomson and Michael Burke of Ardrahan, were recently released from the gentle care of Balfour’s turnkeys in Galway Gaol, after being two months there. They were met by the Craughwell band, with Father Considine. Contingents from Gort, Kinvara, Kilbecanty and Clarenbridge were on hand to welcome the “criminals”.
