One night all the people of Clifden were told that from Mr Kings house to Mr Stanley's house all the houses between were to be put on fire. All the people were to go to the workhouse. That was during the Black and Tan war. Two houses were put on fire that night, Mr B King's house and Mr Joyce's house. St Patrick night was a very bad night in Clifden. The Black and Tans said they would shoot every-body they saw. They said they would shoot the late Canon of Clifden. They shot three men.
