A Young Gentleman Shot by a Gamekeeper
We are informed that a fine young gentleman, Mr. O'Reilly, son to Dr.
O'Reilly, formerly of Carlow, was shot on Wednesday, near Castlecomer,
by the gamekeeper of the Hon. C.B. Wandesforde. According to the report,
Mr. O'Reilly, who carried a fowling piece, had fired at a crow on a
tree, when the gamekeeper came up to demand the gun, which Mr. O'Reilly
refused to give him, whereupon the gamekeeper instantly shot him dead.
The gamekeeper has been apprehended, and committed to Kilkenny jail.
