      MELANCHOLY OCCURRENCE- SIX LIVES LOST
      Charles Atkinson, Esq, coroner, held an inquest on Monday last, at
      Cooleronan, on the bodies of six individuals named James Healy, Thady Hoban,
      James O'Hera, Francis Kean, Winny Monnelly and Biddy Dempsey. From the evidence
      adduced it appeared that on last Sunday evening they were in the act of crossing
      the Moy near Bunafinglass, in a small flat-bottomed boat, used as a ferry boat,
      with merely a short pole and a piece of board to propel it. On launching out the
      water was pouring in at one end of the boat and the party ran to the opposite
      end, which immediately caused the boat to sink. The entire party, consisting of
      the six individuals already named, were precipitated into the water, which was
      about 14 feet deep, and perished in a group, within a few yards of the bank. The
      Moy is not more than about twenty-five yards wide at the place the accident
      occurred.
