GURTEEN BRANCH. The weekly meeting of this branch was held on Sunday, fifth, inst. under the presidency of Rev. M. HENRY, C.C. Thirty new members were enrolled. James HANNON, ex-policeman, was denounced for having sent cattle to graze on the lands of James COSTELLO, J.P. whose tenants have joined the plan because of his refusal to give any abatement of rent; also James BRUEN, for having ground oats for a landgrabber.

The Sligo Times, 20 April 1912

In Sligo we have not been saved from mourning as four promising young men and women have given up their toll to the ocean. One of the saddest cases is that of our fellow townsman, as we may almost call him, Mr. Alfred Middleton of Ballisodane. Mr. Middleton had a very important position on the Titanic and had very probably a brilliant career in front of him. His loss will be deeply regretted by the Sligo people, with whom he was deservedly popular, and the greatest sympathy will be felt with his bereaved and sorrowing family.
