The Bogus Prosecution of the Drumshambo Rowdies in Carrick
The secret alliance that exists between Parnell and Balfour was made clear to all men by the transactions in Carrick on Saturday last. The Drumshambo Rowdies who led the attack on the Nationalist meeting last February in Carrick, were put on their trial for riot in a Crimes Act court before Removables Paul and Preston. [.] At the sitting of the Coercion Court, after some mysterious "colloguings" between the solicitors, it was announced that the Crown had withdrawn the prosecutions against R. J. Cryan, and James McDermott, jun., tailor, Carrick, and John McManus, rate collector, Drumshambo. [.]
