The Tablet, 22nd October, 1842

MALICIOUS BURNING.—The dwelling-house of a poor industrious man, named Higgins, living at Ballyclary, within a mile of Kinvarra, was maliciously set on fire on the night of the 2nd instant ; the family were all in bed when the wicked act was perpetrated. The cracking noise occasioned by the devouring element very fortunately awoke them in sufficient time to prevent any lives being lost.
