Mountshannon evildoers

On Saturday, a party of the Revenue Police, stationed at Killaloe, detected an illicit still at full work at Mountshannon, in the County of Galway. They destroyed a quantity of potale and singlings, and brought away the still, worm, and head, which they lodged in the King’s Stores, Limerick, yesterday. The party also captured several men employed on the works, whom they transmitted to Ennis jail.
