The Nenagh Guardian, 12 September 1838

Two Murders! On Thursday night, about half past nine o'clock, as Mr James Scully's herdsman of the name of Bourke, who lived on his farm at Garnacanty, was on his way home, he was waylaid and brutally murdered about forty perches outside the town of Tipperary. There are two persons taken up on suspicion of murder.

Also same evening, as a man of the name of Ahern, was proceeding home to Donaskee, with a pair of shoes in his hand, he was attacked and murdered at Grenane by two men. No reason can be assigned for these atrocities.—Limerick Chronicle.
