      EXECUTIONS
      Thursday last, Timothy Brusnahan, Patrick M'Auliff, and Thomas Lillis, for
      the burning of Churchtown barracks, and the murder of Hugh Colligan, were
      executed at Cork. They did not address the people; but Brusnahan, who declared
      his innocence so strongly after conviction, made an unreserved communication of
      his guilt. M'Auliff did the like, qualifying it by saying, that having been
      wounded early in the attack, he was not present when the death of the Policeman
      took place. As to Lillis, for whom so strong an alibi case was made out, he
      admitted having been actively concerned in the disturbances, but would neither
      admit nor deny that he was at the burning of Churchtown.
      On Monday last, the three Cremens, brothers, underwent the awful sentence
      of the law at Gallows-green, for the inhuman murder of the Franks' family, and
      to the last moment held out in the same declaration of innocence which they gave
      after trial.--Limerick Paper.
