The Irish Times, 17 October 1896
A raid was made on Tuesday on betting houses in Cork by the police. During the morning constables visited the offices of bookmakers and recorded bets. Subsequently and simultaneously a raid was effected on the premises of Thomas Greenwich, Maylor street ; Michael Ahern, Old Georges street ; and George Perrott, Robert street. Two other houses were also visited, but the owners evidently learned what was about to take place and disappeared. The constabulary forced an entrance and seized the books and dockets. In addition to the owners of the premises raided, several persons who were present were also arrested. The large party was conveyed to the bridewell during the afternoon and brought before a special court of magistrates. Police evidence having been given the accused were remanded for eight days under heavy bail.
