General MULCAHY: It should be stated that Mr. Duggan was arrested on the 19th of August for driving Irregulars. He signed the usual declaration, and was released on the plea that he had acted under duress. He was re-arrested on the 5th September in Macroom, on a similar charge, and his car was seized for obvious reasons. After investigation of the charge, he was released. The car has been detained owing to its having been damaged in an accident. The question of compensation will be considered in due course.
