Cavan Observer

John JACKSON, a caretaker in the employment of the Right Hon. Lord Farnham, K.P., appeared to prosecute William SHERIDAN and Patrick CARTY, two young men, for having, on Sunday, the 23rd of March, trespassed on the lands of Killykeen, with a dog and gun, and shot at waterfowl there. JACKSON stated that on the day named in the summons he saw the defendants with a boat, water spaniel, and gun on the Killykeen river having passed through the land. A short time afterwards he heard a shot, and went down to where the boat was. He asked defendants for their names, when CARTY put the oar of the boat against his breast. SHERIDAN stated that himself and CARTY were seeing a friend home; that as JACKSON did not prevent them passing through the land, they thought it no harm to fire at a baldcoot, and that they would not have done so had they known that they were committing an offence. The defendants received a high character, and JACKSON stated that he had no wish to press the charge of being in pursuit of game.....The Court informed defendants that they had left themselves liable to a fine of £10 for being unlawfully in pursuit of game, their offence being aggravated by the fact that it was committed on Sunday. However, taking the circumstances of the case into account, together with the good character given of them, the Court would only fine them in the costs, and fine CARTY 1s and costs, in addition, for the assault upon JACKSON.
