Fatal quarrel in Tipperary

Published: 22 July 1913

Timothy Connors was remanded in court yesterday, charged with the murder of a labourer, Edward Ryan, 35. It appears that the two men had been walking at Barbaha Cross, and, according to a witness, had been talking loudly. After some three minutes the witness saw Connors hit Ryan, and then proceed to kick the man while he lay on the floor. Connors then walked off, and the witness ran to Ryan’s aid. However, after a brief period of moaning, Ryan died before the witness. It is not known what the two men were discussing, or why Connors killed the man.
