It failed, his Excellency escaping unscathed. One of the murderers was shot dead. The following brief account of the outrage was given in the House of Commons on Friday night by Mr. Macpherson, Chief Secretary for Ire- land "At one o'clock to-day, between Ash- town Station and the Ashtown Park Gate of the Phoenix Park, an attempt was made upon the life of Lor(i-Freiieh, the Viceroy. Four bombs or hand grenades were thrown from behind a hedge. The military gtiaxa fired on the murderers, one of whom was on the road. He was shot dead. 'Detective Halley was shot in the hand while attempting to di-charge a revolver. The constable on duty at the cross roads, close to the scene of the outrage, was also wounded by gunfire. "The rest of the murderers, who dis- charged shots from behind the hedge, escaped. The dead murderer has been identified. In his possession were found two revolvers."
