Sept 30

From the Clonmel Herald of the 30th Sept 1815
On Wed. last in the middle of the day, a large party of men, armed,
assembled in the neighbourhood of Rehill, and robbed Mr. Meagher, of Rehill
Lodge, and a number of persons in that neighbourhood of their arms.
On Thursday last, in the middle of the day, a party of eight men attacked
the house of Mr. John Beere, at Scart, between Cahir and Clogheen, for the
purpose of taking his arms-Mr. Beere, however, with laudable determination
not to submit to those lawless ruffians, sallied out upon them, and with the
assistance of his three brothers, most bravely encountered the assassins,
when, after a discharge of a mumber of shots on each side, the villians
fled, leaving one of the party wounded behind them, who was brought into
Clogheen, and is in custody there.
