| THREE CHILDREN
BURNED TO ASHES—DRUMKERRAN,
CO. LEITRIM, JAN'
30.—Yesterday morning the appalling news spread through the neighbourhood,
that during the night the house of Michael Kelly, of Cloonaugh, had been
destroyed by fire, and that three of his children had persished in the flames.
This report, which could scarcely be credited at first, turned out to be too
true. The following appear to be the facts of this melancholic event :—Kelly
and his wife had, [been to] the fair of Drumkeeran, and returned home about 10
o'clock. An hour or so further on in the night, Kelly's wife went to a farm at a
distance of a field or two to milk and fodder some cattle, leaving in the house
her husband and five children, the eldest of whom was not over 11 years of age.
When she came back in the course of an hour or better, the house was on fire,
her husband and the eldest and youngest child were to be seen, but the second,
third, and fourth, could nowhere be found ; they had fallen a prey to the
devouring element. It appears that when his wife went to milk, Kelly, who it
must be added, was the worse for drink, partially undressed himself and went to
bed. The children waiting their mother's return, took a candle to search for
cakes in the pockets of their father's coat. The candle ignited some flax in the
room, and instantly the whole apartment was in flames. The eldest boy succeeded
in rousing up his father. Half suffocated and bewildered he carried out his
children ; the youngest remained outside the door in its cradle, but the others
unnoticed entered the house again, where they were suffocated and caught by the
fire, except the eldest, who was dragged out a second time in a state of
insensibility. In clearing out the debris, the bodies of the children
were found, almost every part of them reduced to a state of a cinder. Everything
in the house was completely consumed, bank notes to the value of £17 were
burned ; even the dog and cat did not escape. —Sligo Chronicle.
