Clare Journal  3 April 1820

Saturday last, Michael Dwyer and John Dwyer, convicted at our last Assizes for burglary and robbery at the house of a man named O'Dea, were taken from the Jail under escort of Major Warburton's Police, and the party of the 18th Hussars, to O'Callaghan's Mills, where they underwent the awful sentence of the law. The escort which accompanied the criminals from this town, was met on approaching the place of exection by the parties of the 12th regiment, stationed at Tulla and O'Callaghan's Mills and the Ross Castle Yeomanry. They died penitent and acknowledged their guilt. they were both young men, and we sincerely hope their disgraceful and untimely fate, will prove a salutary warning to the great concourse of people that witnessed it. They were the most forlorn and miserably destitute men we almost ever heard of; not a relative or friend appeared to receive their remains; and were it not for the Sheriff who humainly hired a horse and car to convey them to the burial ground, th e coffins would have remained exposed.

The Assizes of Galway terminated on Saturday last. Five Captains of Ribbonmen received the sentence of death. A Mr. Rochford, who is charged with being a leader among this banditti, has put off his trial until the next assizes, and the trial of a Mr. Egan, against whom a similar charge is pending, has been postponed, at the instance of the Counsel of the Crown, a principal witness for the prosecution, who is understood to be an improver, being unable to attend, in consequence of a wound he received.
