By kind permission of Michael Purcell

Be it remembered that on Thursday the Eight day of August in the year of Our Lord One thousand Eight hundred and thirty three Anne Fitzpatrick of Clogrennan in the County of Carlow, Widow , was convicted before William Fishbourne, John Staunton Rochfort, William Cary, Thomas Haughton and Thomas Tench Vigors, Esquires five of His Majestys Justices of the Peace for the County of Carlow for that she did within the last two months sell Spirituous liquors by retail at her residence aforesaid she not being duly licensed so to do and Contrary to the Statute in that case made and provided that she sell only Stout and Ale, in Order that the Spirituous liquors be avoided by the lower classes in the country places the consummation of same to be the cause of unlawful assembly, fighting, felonious acts and rioting and speech against our Lord Sovereign the King and his Heirs and His Peace. And we do therefore adjudge the said Anne Fitzpatrick to have forfeited the sum of Forty Shillings and in default to be confined in the Gaol of Carlow for One Month unless said sum be sooner paid. His Majestys Justices serve this as a warning to others some of whom are present here today this being the most lenient sentence we propose to issue for this crime.

Given under our hands and Seals,
Carlow Sessions this Eight day of August 1833 ~
