Kinvara – 1810

treeThe Gentleman’s Magazine and historical Chronicle

Jan 6
Last week, as a travelling tinker and his wife were passing through Kinvara, they stopped at a public house to take some refreshments; which having done, they were in the act of taking their departure, when the tinker accidentally happened to tread on a favourite dog belonging to the landlady, which so irritated her that she vowed her husband should take revenge. He accordingly did by striking his guest repeatedly and knocking him down. His unfortunate wife was endeavouring to help him up and she received a kick in the belly from a fellow by the name of Ferral, a boatman, which almost instantly deprived her of life. She had a suckling infant at her breast at the time.
