Cork— . . . At Youghal one day a week ago a most remarkable demonstration was made in honour of the memory of a deceased Irish patriot lady of the town, Mrs. Michael Ahearn, who died suddenly. This lady, since her youth, when she was familiarly called Kate O'Neill, possessed in full the qualities of her relatives, who gave many martyrs to the Irish cause since one of them, Father Peter O'Neill, was flogged in Youghal and then transported. There are many of the most prominent "hillside men" of 1867 now in the United States who would have suffered in some of the convict prisons of England were it not for her tact and influence with sheep-owners and sea captains in getting them off disguised. The funeral procession was the largest any person in Youghal ever witnessed, and its length of carriages and cars, which continued all the way to the burial-place at Ballymacoda, was over two miles.
