The Limerick Reporter & Tipperary Vindicator, 29 January 1864

   Mary Hurly, aged 23 years, a victim of leprosy, died in the County Infirmary Limerick, on Sunday last. This disease, it appears, she contracted by washing the clothes of some foreign sailors. The malady was malignant. In Ireland formerly every corporate city had its regal grants for a Leper Hospital—and the lands of the Limerick Leper House were very extensive. In Waterford the annual grants of land are still appropriated to the support of the medical institutions, even yet called “The Leper Hospital,” and in that county, consequently, there is no county infirmary.
   ADARE MANOR—The Earl and Countess of Dunraven have been entertaining at Adare Manor during the last ten days a large and distinguished party of visitors, amongst whom were :— The Earl and Countess of Erne, Lady Louisa Chrichton, Marquis of Beaumont, Hon. C. Crichton, Lord and Lady Cloncurry, Hon. Emly Lawless, Hon. Valentine Lawless, Miss Cole, Miss Emily Cole, Lord Hastings, Hon. Gerald Dillon, Hon. Vesey Dawson, Captain Saunderson, Mrs. Gore Booth, Mr. Edward Saunderson, Mr. Brinsley Nixon, Mr. Llewellyn Saunderson, Mr. Burke, of Thornfield ; Stephen De Vere, Esq., &c., &c.
