|PROBATE AND MATRIMONIAL DIVISION|
Before Judge Warren
Patrick Whelan v. William Ahern and Terence Ahern
| This suit was instituted by the plaintiff to
establish a will dated the 25th of April 1884, alleged to have been executed that day by John Ahern, late of
Mount Uniacke, in the County of Cork who died on the 8th of June, 1884. The plaintiff, who is the son-in-law
of the deceased, was named as executor of the will. The defendants, who are brothers of the deceased,
impeach the document on the usual grounds, including charges of undue influence and fraud.
Mr. Alexander Holmes (instructed by Messrs. Hodnett and Son) moved that the trial should take place before a common jury of the City of Dublin.
Mr. Charles H. Teeling (instructed by Mr. A. J. Spratt, Youghal) appeared for the defendants, and submitted that as all the paries to the suit were belonging to the farming class the case should be tried by a county jury, who, he said, would be better qualified than a city jury to appreciate agricultural modes of thought and action.
The Court fixed the trial for the 18th instant, by the city jury.
