Clonmel Advertiser 11-7-1818

Clonmel July 4th 1818  Election.
Yesterday in consequence of some words in the Eliogarty booth , between Mr. Daniel Falkner, and Mr. John Hunt, of Thurles, they met in a short time at Thakincor, in the County of Waterford, where at the first fire Mr. Hunt received a ball in the left leg, which fractured one of the bones thereof; but we are happy to hear his life is not considered in danger. Mr. Hunt's ball, we understand, passed through one of the whiskers of Mr. Falkner. Mr. Hunt was seconded by Nicholas Meagher, esq., of Thurles, as was Mr. Falkner by Captain Robins.
