CO. MEATH--MURDER AT BRANNOCKSTOWN:--An inquest was held on Friday March 16th, at Trim, before
Matthew MARMION, Esq., one of her Majesty's coroners for the county of Meath, on the body of KILKENNY, the unfortunate man who lost his life while returning from a funeral on Wednesday evening, the 14th instant. Two men, named Christopher MALONE and Thomas SHORT, who had been put under arrest immediately after the dying declaration of KILKENNY, were present at the inquest, in custody of the police. It appears there was a third party at the savage murder, for the deceased's declaration named these two individuals and "one he did not know." The evidence which came out at the inquest went to show a rather important fact connected with the brutality, viz, that the sister of SHORT was found by the constabulary, when they arrested him, washing away blood-marks from a pair of trowsers her brother had thrown off him......From information gleaned from the sister of the deceased man, the police thought proper to put under arrest a man named James WALSH. He was observed by Miss KILKENNY about a quarter of any hour after the murder, in the vicinity of the place where the atrocious act was committed. The footprints about the scene of the tragedy corresponded exactly with the shoes removed by the police from WALSHE's (sic) feet; and , moreover, human hair was found on the shoes. The inquest, at the request of the jury was adjourned to Monday. The prisoners were all remanded, awaiting the finding of the jury. SHORT and WALSHE lived on the one townland; MALONE lived at Toberdinan, the residence of Mr. M'EVOY, M.P. The evidence adduced at the inquest was in some respects very difficult to be extracted, and went to show that the poor fellow KILKENNY, after being knocked down, received little mercy from the blows and brogues of his murderers. Sub-Inspector CAREY and the entire force of the constabulary of Trim deserve much credit for the speedy steps taken to bring the perpetrators to justice.

Meath (the "middle") was once a province of Ireland in its own right - see Kings of Mide - but now forms part of Leinster. Historically this province of Meath included all of the current county as well as all of Westmeath and parts of Cavan, Dublin, Kildare, Longford, Louth and Offaly. The High King of Ireland sat at Tara in Meath.
This is a County in the Republic of Ireland
The population decreased 25% between 1861 and 1901.
