TIPPERARY—A Sad Fatality
A very sad fatality occurred at Cahir recently by which two sisters named Raleigh, home for a holiday with their sister, Mrs. Ahern, lost their lives. It appears that a new house was being built beside Mrs. Ahern's, in Church street, and the gable end, which towered above Mrs. Ahern's, suddenly collapsed during the night and toppled down on Mrs. Ahern's house. The roof was smashed in, and the debris, falling on the bed in which the Misses Raleigh lay sleeping, drove it through the floor of the bedroom into the kitchen below. The unfortunate young, women were killed instantly. Miss Alice Raleigh had been employed in Dublin, and Miss Kate Raleigh in Limerick. The servant had a narrow escape, one of the falling stones striking her as she lay in an adjoining room. Mrs. Ahern slept at the other side of the house, and was uninjured.
