The Limerick Reporter & Tipperary Vindicator, 14 May 1867

   An enormous salmon 47 lbs. in weight, was yesterday caught by a rod and line, by Mr. H. N. Seymour in the Shannon. It had to be borne on the shoulders of two men to be weighed! —The fish baffled the exertions of several tried [sic] anglers before Mr. Seymour took it.
   Ann Dwyer, an unfortunate female from Limerick, attempted to commit suicide in Cork, on Friday morning, by throwing herself over South-gate Bridge, Cork, but was rescued by Mr. Casey, reporter of the Cork Constitution. She was brought up by the Police Court and sent to gaol for two months in default of bail.
