Martin Delaney, Sentry Hill, locally known as the “Rut,” was brought up in custody and charged by Sergt. Finnegan with assaulting him on the 13th inst. while in the discharge of his duty.

There were ten other charges against the defendant, comprising drunkeness, road nuisance, and unlighted vehicles. These were before the court a month ago, but were adjourned, as the defendant was then undergoing a term of imprisonment for another offence.

Sergt. Finnegan stated that on the 13th of the present month he arrested Delaney for drunkeness, and when conveying him to the barracks he gave witness a slap across the face. He was up repeatedly for drunkeness and was a great nuisance.

Defendant was sentenced to three calendar months with hard labour in KIlkenny Jail, at the expiration of which he was ordered to find security for 12 months for good behaviour, in default to be imprisoned for a further period of three months. All the other cases were dismissed.

GAA

Croke Cup Finals. The first of the Croke Cup finals will be played at Kilkenny on Febuary 2nd between Queen’s County and Tipperary hurling teams. Tipperary are holders, having won the title last year from Dublin.

That they mean to retain the Cup for another year is shown by the fact that they have been training carefully for the contest, but they must train for all their worth in the meantime to defeat Queen’s County.

The Leinster Hurling final showed what the Queen’s County men have come to in hurling. They held Kilkenny for forty-five minutes, and were level with them on the score, and it was only when one of their best men had to retire, that Kilkenny forged ahead and won.
