      BALLINA CHRONICLE
      Ballina, Mayo, Ireland
      Wednesday, January 30, 1850

      THREATENING NOTICE - On the morning of Wednesday, the 16th inst., the
      following notice was found stuck on the bottom of a plough belonging to James
      Conboy, a plough man in the employment of a man named Martin Clancy, who resides
      at Coll????y [ink blot over missing part of townland name] :-
      "James Conboy, take notice that if you do not have done with ploughing and
      all other company with Martin Clancy, you will lose the friendship of the
      country, and become your real opponent; and, for your good, would be joyous you
      take this warning." On the same night, the following notice was found posted on
      the door of a man named Michael Oats, who is also a servant in Clancy's
      employment, and was evidently written by the same person:- "Michael Oats, you,
      will not be admitted to continue twenty-four hours with Martin Clancy, so settle
      accounts and gett off as quick as possible, for no man will be allowed to work
      with him until he becomes a dupe to the Workhouse." - Clancy has rendered
      himself obnoxious to the evil-disposed persons of this neighbourhood, in
      consequence of having lately taken possession of a small farm which he has
      industriously cultivated to the exclusion of some other persons who put in
      proposals for it, but were rejected, not being considered as solvent tenants.--
