      THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL
      Galway, Thursday, February 3, 1825

      LIMERICK, JAN 26 - By the exertions of W.H. Pearse, Esq., C.C., Patrick
      Molony, charged with being the leader of a gang who murdered Connell at
      Bilboa, was apprehended on Saturday last, in a Glen, near Keeper Mountain,
      whither he had fled for safety; he was lodged in the county gaol on Sunday
      last.

      On the evening of Wednesday last, the Police of Ballingarry found a
      man, named Richard Morrison, lying in a dyke, near Ballinleena, in a wounded
      state, and speechless. An inquest, which was attended by Surgeon Franklin,
      jun., has been since held on the body, when it appeared that the side of his
      head had been beaten in by a stone or some flat substance. A person, named
      Thomas Roche, who absconded, is charged with the murder.

      On the night of the 8th inst., a person, named Ryan, was found dead in
      the street of Galbally, in this county [Limerick]. An inquest was held at
      the time by C. Bennet, Esq., Coroner, and there did not appear any evidence
      of violence; but it is now ascertained that he was murdered, and two persons
      have absconded, and a third is in custody.

      A clue has recently been discovered, leading to all the circumstances
      of the atrocious and unnatural murder of John Ryan, at Ballyvorneen, near
      Cahirconlish, in October last. This clue has, within these few days, been
      rendered more clear and satisfactory, attaching the strongest guilt to four
      persons, now in prison for the crime, and for whose conviction the fullest
      proof is in preparation. The details of this horrid murder, when given in
      evidence, will affect the most callous feeling, more especially when the
      near relation of one of the parties is considered.

      The Rev. Charles M'Carthy, P.P. of Dromin, has been appointed to the
      Parish of Ballingarry, in the room of the Rev. Gilbert O'Grady, retired. The
      Rev. James O'Regan, Chaplain of the County Gaol, and Curate of St. John's,
      in this City, succeeds Mr. M'Carthy, at Dromin. The Rev. Mr. Tushy succeeds
      the Rev. Mr. O'Regan as first Curate of St. John's; and the Rev. Mr. Liddy,
      of Shanagolden, lately removed from Patrick'swell, has been appointed to St.
      John's.
