Official I.R.A. Galway, issued the following on Monday evening;
Having received information at Galway that post offices were being raided at Kinvara and Ardrahan, five men under Captain Farrelly O’Rourke were dispatched to Kinvara by Motor. Upon arrival they were told that the raiders had left in the direction of Gort. The official party pursued them hotly, and on reaching Gort, were told that the men had gone into the barracks. These men wore uniforms and carried arms, and their names were given to the Official I.R.A. party at Kinvara. Subsequently a man left the barracks, was pursued, and escaped. A sum of one pound ten shillings was taken from Kinvara Post Office.
