Scandalous – 1909


14th August, 1909

It is scandalous to find that when returning from the Galway Races, Patrick Conlon, of Kilcolgan, when approaching Clarenbridge was actually fired at. Conlon was wounded in both legs, and the horse was struck in the neck. The animal became restive and proceeded along the road at a rapid pace. A police patrol in the vicinity soon afterwards came across the injured man and had him surgically treated. The local Constabulary authorities are investigating the occurrences with the usual results. The injured man is at present under treatment in Galway County Hospital.
