    A Bogus Outrage

    Towards the end of June there was a tremendous sensation at Dublin Castle. The telegraph wires announced the commission of a terrible crime The Knight of Glin had been fired at in the precincts of his own town of Glin. Here at last was a real, a true, a genuine, a fearful outrage, the telegraph wires rang with Queries and despatches, and the Castle lawyers plunged deep into Coercion Acts and proclamations. It need not

    be said that Police inquiries were at once addressed to the supposed victim, the Knight of Glin. he was profoundly amused. A sportsman, a man of high respectability was out rabbit shooting, and fired at and shot a rabbit. He was a little too near the road and a few grains of small shot whistled unpleasantly near the car on which the Knight was driving. There were apologies from the sportsman, and the genial Geraldine drove on to the Castle in his usual very excellent health and spirits. And thus dissolved into smoke the kites of Dublin Castle bogus outrage
