      THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL
      Galway, Monday, March 15, 1824

      (From the Clonmel Herald)
      On Sunday the 29th ultimo, in consequence of information received of a
      murder being committed at Carrigeen, near Fethard, on the body of a man named
      John Hackett; that very efficient Chief of Police, with a mounted party of his
      men, repaired to the spot and succeeded in apprehending a young man named Ryan,
      who was charged with the murder, and has since been committed to the County
      gaol, under the Coroner's warrant, an inquest having been held on the body the
      following day, when a verdict of Wilful Murder was returned against Mr. Ryan.
      The same day, after his return home, Mr. Morgan, aided by his son and the
      police under his command, dispersed a riotous and tumultuous mob, that assembled
      in Killen?ule and were pelting stones in every direction, and secured five of
      the principal rioters, who were since committed to the Cashel Bridewell, by that
      very active Magistrate Nathaniel Taylor, Esq. to await their trial under the
      Insurrection Act.
      On the night of the same day, the above mentioned officer in pursuance of
      directions from F. Despard, Esq., Magistrate, after a night's severe fatigue,
      succeeded in apprehending three men for the burning of Walter Skehan's house,
      who were transmitted to the county gaol by Francis Despard, Nathaniel Taylor and
      Richard Millett, Esqrs.
      On Tuesday evening last, a miler in the employment of Mr. Murray, of
      Clogheen, was robbed of a pound note and a few shillings in silver, at a place
      called Gapp, situate on the road from that town to Lumore, by two armed
      footpads, who subsequently attacked and robbed another poor man, named
      Prendergast, of about two pounds; as also a third, from whom they took a few
      tenpennies.
