20 years- ago. The make-tip of the
paper, as well as the construction of

Following Is one of the local Items
the paper contains:
"We are sorry to have to state,
that nocturnal depredations still
continue to exist In the neighborhood
of Clonmel. Within a few nights
past, several honest and Industrious
people have been taken from their
beds and whipped, by a nefarious
banditti. The cause assigned by these
savages for such treatment Is, that
the sufferers are Inhabitants of the
counties of Cork and Kerry, coming
to the country to procure labour, by
means its price Is cheapened."
