British Press, 26 September 1821
Tuesday, September 18.
Before the Hon. Justice Moore and a Special Jury.
The transaction of turf cutting on the mountains of Ballylangden and Grallagh which has excited so much public interest, came on for trial this day. Of the thirty-five persons taken for the riot, bills of indictment were found against nine. A very strict and able investigation of all the circumstances took place now, but it was protracted to so late an hour that we find it impossible to give full details. The Jury returned a verdict of Guilty against Michael Lennane, and John and Terence Ahern, being the only persons who were positively identified as being active in the riot. They were sentenced to six months imprisonment at hard labour.
