By Robert Rochfort, Esquire, one of his Majesties Justices of the
Peace for Carlow.
The Examination of James Neal of Ballinabrannagh, Parish of
Cloydagh, in the County of Carlow, by trade a Cooper, who being duly
sworn on the Holy Evangelists and examined saith that on Wednesday
the 23rd July 1800 between the hours of ten and eleven O'Clock at
night two men came to his house.
They were Dennis McDaniel and Sylvester Delaney both resident in
Graige, Queen's County. Dennis McDaniel came up to the house of
James Neal and immediately demanded admittance upon which James Neal
asked him what he wanted at that hour of the night, his answer was
"open the door you rascal until I search your house for rebels",
upon which James Neal was obliged to open the door and instantly
received a punch on the breast from the muzzle of a pistol in said
McDaniel immediately swore he must have money or his life, upon
which saying his wife bounced out of bed and ran to a trunk and
opened it and shewed McDaniel some receipts, McDaniel immediately
threw them about the floor saying to Mrs Neal
"you whore this is not what
- I want I must get money".
McDanial immediately ran into the bedroom and took hold of James
Neals breeches and out of the Pocket book in the breeches took the
amount of 7 Guineas, -- one of which was a 5 Guinea note and the
others two 1 Guinea notes -- upon which McDaniel went to the fire
and lit some chips and while they were lighting he said he must look
at his watch as he said he must go that night elsewhere.
McDaniel made James Neal and his wife and his son swear that they
would never give out or inform that they were robbed of either a
Shilling, paper or money -- in consequence of what McDaniel had done
in the house Mrs Neal was immediately taken violently ill and died
in 14 days after and further James Neal sayth not ~~~

Sworn before me this day at the house of James Neal the 2nd day of

James Neal further swears that during the time McDaniel was robbing
the house the said Slyvester Delaney was guarding James Neals son in
an out-house and prevented him from coming to assist James Neal and
that Slyvester Delaney had a Gun in his hand.
James Neal bound in the sum of £10 to prosecute at the next General
Assizes to be held in Carlow.
