Carlow Sentinel.

May 1901.

Sad death from Alcoholic poisoning.

An Inquest on the body of James O'Neill, Killane, Carlow, aged 19 years.

From the evidence of John Cummins, it appears two men named Jeremiah Clowry and Michael Byrne accompanied deceased to Cummins's house where Michael Byrne produced a bottle of whiskey, containing about 5 naggins.

The bottle was passed around, and the deceased boy took a good portion Of it on two occasions and the last time the deceased emptied it, it then contained nearly two glasses.

Then all sang songs and chatted for some time, when Clowry went home.

James O'Neill sat on the chair, spread out his hands, fell to the ground and turned over as if he was going to sleep, after an hour they shook him but found him quite dead.

Dr Fryer, Leighlinbridge stated deceased died from alcoholic poisoning,

The jury agreed.
