The estate of Menlo, part of which lies in the Counties of Galway and
Clare, is about to afford some employment to the Gentlemen of the long robe.
Mr. F.B. Foster claims it, he says, as heir-at-law. -- Weekly Register.
On Thursday night last, the pound of Moycullen, which is situate
immediately opposite the pound-keeper's house, was broke open by some
persons, and several head of cattle taken therefrom, seized on the lands of
Killigaile, the estate of William Martin, Esq., and impounded for a large
arrear of rent due to him. The owners of the cattle must, no doubt, have
been the perpetrators of this daring outrage; and, strange to say, the
pound-keeper nor his sons, who act for him, have not as yet come forward to
lodge information against these persons, although they cannot be known to
them - nor have they rendered any account to Mr. Martin for the property
thus committed to their charge. We understand an investigation of this
affair is to take place before P.M. Burke, Esq. a Magistrate of this County.
About Seven Acres of this Land, being part of the Estate of Thomas H.
Royse, Esq., will be Set from the 25th of March next. A Lease of one or two
hundred years will be granted.
For further particulars apply (if by letter post paid) to A. Royse,
Esq., Ougherterard, or Francis Leland, Esq. 6, Fitzwilliam square, Dublin.
