Amongst the latest wounded in WW1 were W Sullivan, Clogheen, Garrison Artillery and J Golden, Fermoy, Connaught Rangers. Meanwhile, the Military Authorities in the Queenstown and Fermoy districts announced that they were open to receive tenders for the supply of 8,000 tons of house coal.

At Kanturk Quarter Sessions, a decree was given for £2 against Michael Torpey and Andrew Regan, both of Doneraile, the former as contractor, who refused to pay plaintiff, Jerh Healy, Dromahane, for a quantity of sand, stating as his objection that he was not the contractor, but the late W G Mitchell, a one time manager of the Doneraile Sawmills. Dr O’Meara, for plaintiff, said Mr Hamilton, the present manager of the Doneraile Sawmills, had the money, which he would hand to defendants.
Daniel Mullane summoned James Foley at Fermoy Sessions for, that on May 29th last, the defendant assisted in burying the corpse of one David Foley in Glanworth graveyard in a grave being the burying place of, and used by, complainant and his family, not having been a member of such family, without the consent in writing of said complainant, being the immediate relative of the member of his family last interred therein.
The parties resided near Glanworth. In cross examination it emerged that a family of the Downings were buried in the same graves. The Downings were relatives of both parties.
The court dismissed the case, holding that the grave in question was that of the Downings family, who were related to the defendant.
The annual meeting of the Lismore, Cappoquin and Districts Branch of the NSPCC was held in the Devonshire Arms Hotel, Lismore. The Rev J Kirwan, CC, acted as chairman. A resolution was passed reappointing the committee and officers for the ensuing year. The organiser was Miss Cecilia Power.

Considine, Esq., Local Government Auditor on the 1st day of July 1916 at 11am; when and where objections to any matter contained in the said several accounts would be heard.
A complaint was made at Fermoy Urban Council about the great speed at which motor cars and motor cycles were being driven through the town and the clerk stated that the late District Inspector, Mr Villar, had on the request of the Urban Council, brought several prosecutions for excessive speed, and the magistrates convicted only in one or two cases. The chairman said it would be better to write to district Inspector Lewis on the matter. This was agreed to.
