Newspaper article 2:

To-day Thomas Coyne, Park, Athenry was arrested and sent by the 10.30 o'clock train to
Galway Jail. There are eight other arrestes expected in the town. The Rev. Father McPhilpin accompanied Coyne to the jail.

Other articles also mention who were also arrested were Patrick C. Kelly, P.L.G. and Thomas Keary.
