FATAL ACCIDENT

He was immediately conveyed to the County Infirmary, when he died in the course of an hour. An inquest was held next day by Thomas Dobbin, Esq., J.P., and a verdict returned accordingly. On Sunday the Rev. Mr. O'Brien made a moving appeal for the widow and orphans, which was nobly responded to, and a collection of 12 12s. 7d. taken up.
