The Kerry Examiner, 6 February 1849

A poor man named Pat Fahy, of Kilkishen who was in receipt of outdoor relief having become severely ill was left for six days without nourishment lying on some straw on the floor of his cabin, which was covered with water to the depth of two inches. Through the charity of the Rev. Mr. Tuohy, he was at last supplied with some nutriment, and an attempt was made to remove him to Tulla Hospital, but he died on the car. The Relieving Officer visited the house, but did nothing for the poor man's relief.
