Galway, Thursday, June 24, 1824
Tuesday morning, a young man of the name of Bracken, aged about 21 years,
was unfortunately drowned, whilst bathing in the river, at the rere of the
County Gaol. The poor fellow, although and indifferent swimmer, incautiously
ventured into deep water, where he in a few minutes sunk. He was accompanied by
two others, who, however anxious about his perilous state, could render no
possible assistance, from their inability to swim. His remains were taken out in
a short time after, and though medical assistance was in attendance, all efforts
to restore animation were ineffectual. A coroner's inquest returned a verdict
of --"Drowning by accident."
On Friday, the 18th instant, a meeting was held at Tuam of the Trustees for
the Encouragement of industry in the County of Galway, at which Mr. Hyett,
Secretary to the London Directors, attended. Applications for the Loan of
various sums, from £30 to £100, were made by the Committees of Kiltrasna,
Abbert, Downpatrick, Tuam, Cregg, &c. We are happy to observe, that the public
attention to this useful and benevolent system has been excited, and hope that
the example will soon be followed by the remaining parts of the county.
The Public are hereby Cautioned not to take in in payment or otherwise, any
Promissory Notes or Bills, purporting to be signed by me, and passed to PATRIC
DOUGHERTY, as same has never been executed by me or any value or consideration
what ever received, and am therefore, determined to take such proceedings
against him, for my own safety, as the law may direct- Given under my hand at
Galway, this 23d day of June, 1824.
