Execution of Felix Cleary and Martin Ahern
These unhappy men suffered the extreme penalty of the law about twelve o'clock yesterday, for the murder of John Cantwell, on triangles erected in the street opposite the gaol, the drop being out of order. The unhappy men addressed the sub-sheriff and the crowd, and declared their innocence of the crime for which they were about to suffer. They forgave their prosecutors, who, they said, were mistaken with respect to the persons concerend in the murder.—Clonmel Herald.

   Two men, named Patrick and Michael Ahern, underwent the sentence of death passed on them at the last assizes, for burglary, and an attempt to murder a man of the name of Clare, of Ballivrislane, on the 29th of December last. They neither admitted or denied their guilt, further than that they tacitly admitted being of the party that committed the outrage.—Ennis paper.
