The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser 13th July 1920 p4

(abridged)
On Sunday morning at 2 o’clock, the house of John Killeen, a labourer, living near Kinvara, was fired into. One bullet lodged in Killeen’s chest and the other fell beside him on the bed. Dr Connolly immediately was on the scene and had him removed to the County Infirmary where the bullet was extracted.
Killeen is a laborer employed by Mr Fergus O’Dea Kinvara who holds some land at Seamount from Mrs Nally, Kinvara. The division of the property has resulted in a strong agitation among the surrounding tenants. Mr O’Dea surrendered part of his land and Killeen and others took up an acre or so each. On Monday Mr Killeen walled in his portion.
