Jackson's Oxford Journal, 15 December 1804
MURDER.—Last week a dreadful murder was committed in the county of Waterford, on a farm lying between Dungarvan and Youghall [Co. Cork]. A gang of ruffians feloniously broke into the dwelling-house of a poor man, one Daniel Ahern, and cruelly murdered him and his son ; they also threatened the rest of the family with the same fate, if they did not within three days remove f rom the land. Ahern's having lately taken the farm is the supposed cause of this horrid transaction. A letter from Youghall mentions a report that six men, strongly suspected of the murder, had been apprehended.—Waterford Chronicle.
