LIMERICK Lament: Motor Tragedy Claims Three Lives in Kerry

A sombre cloud hangs over Killorglin in County Kerry as news of a tragic motor accident unfolds, claiming the lives of three unknown men. The incident, which occurred today, has left the community reeling with shock and sorrow.

Reports reveal that the unfortunate event transpired when a group travelling in a motor car registered in Limerick made a stop in Killorglin for petrol. Seeking directions to Tralee, the chauffeur followed advice to take “the first turn on the left.” However, this guidance led the vehicle down an unfamiliar path towards Ballykissane quay, commonly known as a narrow lane.

In a harrowing turn of events, the car careened into the deep waters of the lane, submerging its occupants. Though the driver managed to escape, the three passengers were not as fortunate. Their identities remain shrouded in mystery, with conflicting rumours circulating about their background.

Search efforts led to the recovery of two bodies, described as belonging to the labour class and believed to hail from Limerick. Shockingly, each carried a revolver, alongside Sinn Féin paraphernalia, adding layers of intrigue to the already tragic narrative.

The chauffeur, identified as R. McInerney from Limerick, has been taken into custody and detained at Tralee Gaol. Authorities are conducting a thorough investigation to piece together the circumstances surrounding this heart-wrenching incident, while the community mourns the loss of lives in this limerick lament.
