This is another of Mike Hannon’s old photos I found online. I’m presuming it was taken in the bands room/ St. Patrick’s Hall


 ‘Twas Rough in These Parts in August 1825

“A barbarous
outrage was committed on Sunday last, on the person of an elderly man, of the
name of Neligan, near Listowel, at one of those gaol(sic) matches which usually disgrace
the Sabbath. He was a spectator on this occasion, when some of the contending
party struck him with hurlies on the head; he fell and was trampled on, while
repeated blows put an end to his existence. The only pretence that can be
assigned for this murder is that he was connected with a party against whom
his assailants cherished a hostile feeling from some old recontre.”—Limerick
