Masked men recently perpetrated a daring robbery of the car caring the mails from Kilcolgan, Co Galway to Ballyvaughan. The car was held up by a party of masked men, all of whom were armed. A revolver was pointed at the driver who dismounted and fled for safety.

The car was driven for seven miles in another direction and when it was discovered by the roadside it was seen that several mailbags had been torn open and open letters were strewn in every direction.

The police rare scouring the country in search of the highwaymen.
