On Thursday Tim Meskell, of Tarbert, accompanied by two bailiffs and a posse of police, evicted a man named Kennelly and his family from their home at a place called Baragougeen, As far as I could gather, the circumstances which led to the eviction are of a most distressing kind. About nine years ago Kennelly was a prosperous farmer. About that time his wife got ill. For three years she remained in bed from a lingering sickness from which she died. In a short time after his son got fever, and for six months the fever raged in his family. Whatever money he had and the most of his stock he lost to meet the wants of sickness. Bad times came then, and like thousands of his countrymen he was forced into debt. He got acquainted with Meskell, and from him he got £19. About three years ago Meskell took possession of his land until he would have his money out of it. When Meskell got possession he allowed Kennelly a fixed amount of money to support him, but now when he should have his money out of the land he turns about and evicts the actual owner. It was heartrending to hear poor Kennelly’s daughter cry as the ruthless bailiffs were breaking up the bed on which her mother died, but the only answer they gave to her pitiful wailing was that it was no harm to take it out under the wind. When Kennelly’s daughter offered Meskell the amount of the debt and £10 besides, he told her he wouldn’t let her have it now for £300. After the door was locked, Kennelly got forty-eight hours to clear away his effects out of the yard, or else he would be prosecuted for trespass. A police constable named Ryan refused to attend the eviction, and threw off the jacket. He was stationed at Tarbert.—COR.
