A conflict took place between two armed police and a number of people at Kilbeacanty. The police, who were protecting an emergency man, entered a public house on their way to Loughgraney, when the party inside, it is alleged, took their rifles and injured them. Assistance having come to the aid of the police, four arrests were made. The names of the prisoners have not yet transpired.
