Morning Chronicle 10th January, 1846
Workmen employed by Mrs Dr. Silver at Mount Agentino, near Tulla were throwing down an old house (said to be the oldest in Clare) when they discovered a small leather bag in the wall. It contained thirty nine guineas, of the reign of George II. They also found a curious shaped bottle full of gold and silver coins of various dates, said to be of the value of £250; nine curiously chased silver spoons; an antique fish trowel and a valuable enamelled gold ring. The spoons and ring had the arms and initials of O’Grady on them.
