The Times, 30 November 1881
A strange scene was witnessed to-day at Blarney. A respectable farmer named Denis Ahern, a tenant of Sir George Colthurst, was recently served with a writ for rent. It was reported that the tenant's harvest produce would be seized by the bailiffs in satisfaction of the rent, and to-day a number of farmers, estimated at 500, assembled with their horses and carts and drew away corn, hay, straw, and other matters from Mr. Ahern's farm so that there should be nothing left for the bailiffs when they arrived.
