[note added 2013 by Michael Purcell -- the THEATRE, Carlow was set up for a period at the Assembly Rooms, Dublin Street in 1836.

An advert declares ~~~

On Tuesday evening, the 1st of March 1836, the AFRICAN ROSCIUS Begs leave to announce that his BENEFIT  And last night of performance in Carlow, will take place and which he trusts that the novelty, variety, and merit of the Pieces he has selected, will ensure him a full and fashionable Audience

~~~

The Performance will commence with Maturins Tragedy of BERTRAM, or, The Castle of St. Aldobrand; etc. etc. ~~~~

There is much more on the advert, of which we will post an image later. "AFRICAN ROSCIUS" is googleable.]


Carlow Sentinel.

March 1836.

Attack on the Police.

Patt Byrne, William Bowles and Patt Fenlon, were charged at Carlow sessions with having caused a riot at the entrance to the theatre on Tuesday night, and with having cut and wounded Michael Kane and Sub-constable Flanagan.

Byrne did not appear - Kane and the sub-constable were dreadfully cut by one of the ruffians, named Fenlon.

It appears that on entering the theatre Kane was struck and knocked down by the parties, and that one of them (Byrne) declared they would have his life.

On the arrival of the police those desperate characters attacked them, and inflicted a deep cut on the face of sub-constable Flanagan.

The magistrates fined them £3 each or two months imprisonment, and a warrant was issued for the apprehension of Byrne, who is a bailiff.

If the bench proceed in this summary manner to punish the street ruffians of Carlow, they will soon restore order to the town, which at present is in so disorderly a state that no constable can execute his duty without risking his life.

This is chapel morality, at least the result of political harangues from the Altar.
