The Times, 3 November 1885
Seven men have been arrested at Killorglin in connexion with the moonlight raid upon the house of the man Doyle, who, it will be remembered, captured, with the assistance of his sons, a man named Casey, who was the ringleader of the party. The seven prisoners consist of three brothers named Tagney, from the Gap of Dunloe, a fourth man of the same name, Michael Meara, Denis Hallassey, and James Ahern. The arrests are attributed to information communicated to the constabulary by a man named Brien, a fugitive from justice, who happened to be concealed in Doyle's house on the night of the attack, and who, it is said, assisted Doyle in repelling the assailants and in seizing the leader of the gang.
