“Approaches to Enniscorthy within a radius of 3 miles… blocked with felled trees”

C.I. Wicklow wires on 28/4/16. Handed in at 10-45p.m. Received at 11-8p.m.

C.I. Wexford wires as follows. I have ascertained that the damage to Barrow Bridge of D.S.E. Ry. means only the removal of some coping stones and the twisting of a rail. Information has been received that the Scarawalsh Bridge 3 miles from Enniscorthy on the road to Ferns and Dublin was blown up and that the approaches to Enniscorthy within a radius of 3 miles of the town are blocked with felled trees and in one case by a telegraph pole which the Irish Volunteers have placed there. Conflicting reports have been received this evening as to Edermine Bridge on the road between here and Enniscorthy 3 miles from the latter was being torn up by Irish Volunteers from Enniscorthy. Enniscorthy is still held by the Irish Volunteers and no information as to the actual state of the town is obtainable. No untoward incident has been reported from the Districts of Wexford, New Ross, or Gorey. D.I. at New Ross reports his district is now peaceable but that he fears trouble.
