On 21st day of September 1826 Laurence Conneron of Bortle in the Parish of Kiltegan, County of Wicklow made the following statement to Rev. James McGhee, Justice of the Peace.

On Monday 18th day of September I was in Hacketstown, Carlow when I was violently and riotously attacked without any provocation I was beaten , cut, battered and abused by Andrew Shannon and Patrick Freeman both of Hacketstown, Carlow , Laurence Doyle of Bortle, Wicklow , Hugh King of Eagle Hill, Carlow, Patrick Reilly of Eagle Hill otherwise Crounaseagh, Carlow all of whom joined with nine others in assaulting and beating me and I really think that I would have been killed had it not been for the interference of the women of Hacketstown.
