At the petty sessions of Loughrea, Ireland, the master of the Union Workhouse preferred a charge against one of the inmates, named Catherine Mahony, “for having continued to speak when cautioned to be silent.”
The magistrate dismissed the complaint and strongly censured this new mode of burking (hurting?) the paupers.
