Ex-Soldiers Shot

Two ex-army men names Patrick O'Hara and James Maher, both of Thurles, who had been missing for the past couple of days, were found dead in a field at Ballytalana on Tuesday night.

A card with the word "Spy" was pinned on the body of James Maher. Both served during the late war, and had been in the army for some years prior to the war.

It is stated they were accused of having given information to the police.
