County Observer and Monmouthshire Central Advertiser, 23 July 1881
The coachman of Mr. Lysaght, residing near Mallow, was attacked while attending the Cahirmee fair, and severely beaten. A man who was a stranger to him struck him with a stick on the head, knocking him down ; some further blows were dealt, and the assailant made off. The only explanation that can be furnished for this wanton assault is that Mr. Lysaght recently purchased a small farm adjoining his property. He bought land from the tenant in possession, but the latter repented of the bargain, and appealed in vain to the Land League. Since then Mr. Lysaght's house has been fired into and his ploughman was shot at.
