|TAKING FORCIBLE POSSESSION OF A FARM|
|To-day William and Cornelius Ahern were charged at Ballymartle Petty Sessions with having, on the 23rd October, taken forcible possession of a house from which they had been previously evicted. They alleged that they were reinstated by an armed party, but the defence raised was that no person authorised by the landlord had demanded possession from them, though it appeared that the sheriff's bailiffs and the police three times went to the place and demanded possession. The case was adjourned in order to have the opinion of the Law Advisers on the point of law. Major Heard stated that he was in treaty for the farm, but when he heard of the reinstatement he would have nothing to do with the place.|
