Coroner's Inquest

A letter from Bruff, co. Limerick, dated December 19, says, "Last Saturday
a Coroner's inquest was held on the body of Patrick Brown, late of
Ballydahin, who on the 22nd of last month, received several wounds and
bruises on his head. A very respectable jury, after a minute investigation,
unanimously brought in a verdict of Wilful Murder against Patrick, John,
and Thomas Ahern, of Cammas, labourers; and John Ahern, of Ardanrech,
farmer. This is the third murder which has been committed with impunity,
within a few months, in this town and its neighborhood."
