The Irish Times, 5 April 1882
A respectable farmer, named Nichola Ahearn, formerly a member of the Land League, was charged yesterday, at Cloyne Petty Sessions, with having arms in a proclaimed district, and with having fired at his children. His daughter, a young girl of 16, stated that while her father was in a rage, he fired his revolver, the bullet passing within five feet of her head, and lodging in a tree. The son, a youth of 17, said a shot was fired through the roof into his bedroom, but neither he nor his sister would say the father fired at them. Informations were refused in the latter charge, but he was fined five pounds for having arms in a proclaimed district.
