The Connacht Tribune 22nd April, 1916

The “Northern Whig” London Correspondent states that he learns “the Irish Government have at last awakened to the fact that it is necessary to do something towards stopping the propaganda of treachery and sedition that has long been going on under their noses”, and he adds that “reports have reached the House of Commons from Dublin Castle that the situation is serious.” Probably it was an echo of the Campbell appointment that the correspondent heard! It is reported that Mr. Ernest Blythe, one of the organisers of the Irish Volunteers deported 11 days ago, along with Mr. Liam Melllowes, who had been in Galway, has been arrested in Oxford, charged with failing to report to the local police. A story goes the rounds that one of the Volunteer organisers who was lodging in a certain home in Galway, which was closely “shadowed” during his stay there, escaped the city under the very nose of the police. Mr. Sean MacDermott, who got three months in Jail for a speech delivered in Tuam some months ago, is once more back in Dublin, having completed his sentence.
