Spy Rumour from Eire Scotched
'Dere is not a word of truth in the statement made at Jordanstown, Co. Armagh. on Saturday last by Sir Hugh O'Neill, M.P.. that many times in recent weeks and months a German submarine had come in at night to one of the 'remote harbours in the West of Ireland, had sent a boat ashore to meet an enemy agent by arrangement, taken away some message to be sent to Ger: many, and that this would happen again, so states an Irish correspondent, quoting official Irish sources in London.
It will be remembered that some months ago in the Daily Mail, W. F. Martin, since promoted to be the paper's naval correspondent, told how a German submarine came up In a remote County Kerry inlet and how the captain came ashore and ran up the path to a housewife, calling out " Maggie; have you our fresh vegetables ready?" This allegation was completely disproved by Government spokesmen in the HOUR, of Commons.
