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.
Being St. Luke's Day, Doctor Barber was elected President, Doctor Nesbitt,
