The Irish Times, 17 November 1910
LISMORE, Wednesday   
   To-day William Ahearne, a farmer of Coolishal, Lismore, aged about 50 years, met his death under sad cirumstances. He was driving a spirited horse, to which was attached a creell, in which was seated his wife and son, when a motor car approached from the opposite direction. Ahearne and his son left the car, and held the horse by the head. The animal instantly became restive and bolted, and the shaft strking William Ahearne in the chest, knocked him senseless to the ground. He died shortly afterwards.
