      Galway, Monday, September 27, 1824

      On the 16th instant, aged 70 years, the Reverend Raymond Hargadon,
      Parish Priest of Annadown. The bright assemblage of the many Christian
      virtues and estimable qualities which addressed the life and the apostles
      and integrity which invariably marked the character of this pious and
      exemplary Ecclesiastic, have rendered him the universal esteem and
      veneration. For 36 years that he resided in this parish, he was
      unremittingly devoted to the dearest interests of his flock, in performing
      with edifying fidelity and exactness the sacred functions and arduous duties
      of a good Pastor. His frugal habits as well as the singular kindness of the
      very respectable family in which he lived for many years, enabled him to be
      always attentive to the wants of his indigent parishioners. But his charity,
      his favourite and characteristic virtue, shone with increased lustre at the
      eve of his life. He has some years back established a school in the Parish
      Chapel, to the masters of which he bequeathed in-perpetuity the interest of
      200l. for giving moral and religious instructions gratuitously to fifty of
      the most indigent and destitute children of the parish, and for giving
      chatechistical instructions to the youth in general on every Sunday both
      before and after Divine Service. When prevented by debility from visiting
      the abodes of distress during the last summer, he invited the poor and
      distributed in person among them upwards of 200l. In addition to these
      highly commendable instances of pure and disinterested charity, he
      bequeathed 40l. to the poor of his parish, 40l. to forward the interests of
      Catholic education, and 100l. to be applied to various charitable purposes.
      The inconsiderable residue of his effects he bequeathed to his poorer
