(Above) Garda Síochána report dated 2 July 1934 regarding the daubing of provocative slogans by five men on the streets of Clogheen, county Tipperary. According to the report which was submitted by Sergeant John Kelly in Clogheen Garda Station to the Garda Superintendent in Cahir, one of the slogans “Join the Blue Shirts – Ireland for O’Duffy and Madrid for the Spaniard” was considered by Kelly to be offensive to the present government and the painting of slogans as an act likely to lead to a breach of the peace. Inspector T Mulcahy agrees and recommends that proceedings be taken against those responsible for the graffiti.
