The Irish Times, 14 November 1933
Armed Men Search House.
   About 9.30 on Saturday night the flat at Washington street, Cork, occupied by Commandant Joseph Aherne, Secretary of the Young Ireland Association of Cork Branch of the United Ireland Party, was raided by five armed men.
   Commandant Aherne was absent with his sister, Mrs. Shaw, but the latter's child, aged two, was asleep in the flat, and a youth who is a friend of the Aherne's was also there. The youth was held up while the raiders searched the entire premises for arms, but failed to find any.
   Before leaving the men said they were "Broy Harriers."
   The child became hysterical during the raid, and it is stated that some damage was caused to the furniture.
