  • Notes 
    • The news of the passing of Jim Gorman, Chief of Police, on February 23, 1927, was heard here with genuine regret, as he was very well known in this locality, especially to the generation of twenty-five years ago. He, at that time, was one of the members of the famous Killean tug-of-war team.
