BROTHERS FOUND DEAD
A report received in Dublin from Galway states that the dead bodies of Patrick and Henry Loughnane, who had been "on the run" were found at Coole Park, about three miles from Gort, on Sunday. They resided at Shanaglish, Beag, a thinly-populated and an almost inaccessible district of County Galway. Patrick was president of the local Sinn Fein club and Harry its secretary. While threshing corn at their home on Friday week they were arrested, but they escaped from custody. How they came to their deaths is unknown.
While soldiers were searching a crowd at Ballyshannon on Monday night some of the people made their escape. They were fired upon by the soldiers and Thomas Rooney, a compositor, was killed. He was an ex-soldier.
