      THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL
      Galway, Thursday, February 26, 1824

      OUTRAGE- On Monday night last, as Patrick M'Can, James Quin, Michael Bradley,
      and another man, from Swateragh, were returning from the market of Coleraine,
      with a quantity of barley which they purchased from a neighbouring farmer, they
      were way-laid in the parish of Aughedoey, about a mile from Garvagh, by a parcel
      of vagabonds, who cut their sacks, overturned their cars, strewed the barley
      along the road, and beat them in a most brutal and unmerciful manner. This is
      the third time men have been assailed in Aughedoey returning with grain, and the
      only pretended reason assigned is, that these men are raising the markets,
      because they are not in a league with any others, but giving a fair price for
      farm produce.- Now it is sincerely hoped, that the Magistrates who reside in the
      neighbourhood where the deed was committed, and the Gentlemen of the parish,
      will use every effort in their power to find out and make an example of the
      individuals concerned in this outrage, and thus suppress a system of iniquity,
      which, if persisted in, will bring the parish into disgrace, and deprive the
      farmer of the benefit of a fair market.
