Although there was no disturbance of any kind in Kinvara or district during the recent Rising, the entire population maintaining an attitude of perfect calm throughout, over a score of arrests were made by the local police. In spite of representations by Mr. W.J.Duffy M.P., and others, scarcely any of those interned have as yet been released. During the week Ml. Stanton of Cloonasee, was released and arrived home quite unexpectedly on Tuesday evening.
