      COMMISSION OF LUNACY
      On Friday an inquiry was made by Mr. Close and Mr. Beatty into the state of
      mind of Charles Kirkwood, Esq. of Bartra. Mr. Martley, Q.C., appeared on behalf
      of Mrs. Kirkwood to ascertain whether the supposed lunatic was of unsound mind,
      and at what time he became insane. After the examination of witnesses jury
      returned a verdict that Mr. Kirkwood was of unsound mind, and has been so since
      the 15th of April. It appeared on the examination that Mr. Kirkwood's real
      estate amounted to £320 a-year, his chattel property was £540, and the value of
      his railway shares was £10,138. Mrs. Kirkwood desirous to avoid publicity,
      caused him to be placed in the asylum at Finglas.
