ENNIS, MAY 31 - On Tuesday night last two farmhouses the property of Major
M'Namara, in the neighbourhood of Affog, about three miles from Tulla, were
maliciously set fire to and totally consumed; and on Thursday night last; a
farmhouse the property of a man named M'Lounan, residing near Broadford, was
also consumed. No reason can be assigned for those outrages, but that on the
following morning they were to be taken possession of by new tenants.
Thursday night, a barn, in the parish of Ogonelloe, in this county (Clare),
in which it is stated £58, the property of Patrick Roughan, a tithe collector,
were deposited, was maliciously consumed, a few nights previous, part of his
dwelling-house was burned.- Captain Drought and his police are using every
endeavour to discover the perpetrators.
A Roman Catholic Chapel is directed to be built at Kilkee, in the county of
Clare, and the Protestant visitors at that most desirable sea-bathing coast,
hope, that the Bishop of Killaloe will adopt means to have a Church erected
there also, as the inconvenience to the visitors is much felt in resorting to
Kilfeera, a distance of nearly two miles from the village.
