      Tuesday, October 23, 1764

      About eight o'Clock at Night, two Men, armed, came to Mr. Connolly, who
      keeps a publick House at Ballina-flinging Hill, in the Country of Dublin,
      and after calling for some Ale, insisted on lodging there that Night, as it
      was too late to come to Dublin, which Mr. Connolly agreed to; and about One
      o'Clock in the Morning the Villains got up, and tied Mr. Connolly, his Wife,
      and Child, and afterwards robbed the House of six Guineas and some Wearing
      Apparel, with which they made off, and left them tied.
