Cricket, Cancer Cure and Rumours from the Curragh

East Galway Democrat (Frontpage) [2.12.16]-1

‘Officially denied that such is not the case’

‘At last meeting of Ballinasloe Board of Guardians was read a communication from the Skin and Cancer Hospital, Holles St., Dublin, of the complete cure in that Hospital of a cancer patient sent from Ballinasloe Union.  The treatment is by Radium, which replaces the old method of cutting the deceased part, and this is but one of numerous successful cases treated in this Hospital with which we are ourselves acquainted.
The game of cricket, which has always been so popular in Ballinasloe, is again in evidence, and pleasant practices take place on the Fair Green during the week evenings.
It is freely rumoured in Ballinasloe that a mutiny of some sort has occurred recently at the Curragh.  It is officially denied that such is not the case, and that the behaviour of the soldiers there is most satisfactory.

From the East Galway Democrat, 20 May 1916
