      FISHERY AFFAIR - It will be in recollection that a few weeks since the
      magistrates at county petty sessions, at the prosecution of the Conservators of
      the Shannon Fishery, convicted Stafford O'Brien, Esq., Patrick M'Namara, John
      Punch, Joseph Massay, Patt Dwyer, John Hayes, and Joseph Greene, in penalties of
      £2 each, under the 5th and 6th Vic., for having weirs erected in portions of
      the river not three quarters of a mile wide at low water of spring tide. Against
      these decisions appeals were lodged, the hearing of which came on this day
      before the Assistant Barrister. Counselor Graydon appeared for the conservators,
      Messrs. Gleeson and Joynt for the appellants. After a full hearing of the case
      against Stafford O'Brien, Esq., the court affirmed the decision of the
      magistrates, with £5 costs; and against all the other parties with £1 costs, his
      worship intimating that the applicants could bring the cases before the Court of
      Queen's Bench, by writ of certiorari.-- Limerick Chronicle
