Stand and Deliver!
Arrest of a Robber
On the 26th inst, as Mr John Hudson, eldest son of John Hudson of Dungarvan, was proceeding on horseback to Youghal School, he was stopped about the hour of one o’clock on the mountain of Slievegrine, by a footpad, who presented a pistol at him and demanded his money. Mr Hudson replied that he had none. The fellow ordered him to search his pockets, but Mr. H. refused, desiring him to search them himself, if he wished. The robber however did not do so, and ran off through the mountain, followed by Mr. Hudson until he approached Mount Odell, where being assisted by four persons in the employment of Mr. Odell, they pursued and came up with the fellow, who presented the pistol at them, but seeing a determination on the part of Mr. H. … he surrendered himself a prisoner. His name is Timothy Kilmartin, and was some time since tried for a burglary and robbery in the house of Thomas Connery: he has been committed to our county gaol. Mr Hudson (who is only 18) deserves the highest praise for his very spirited conduct…by which he has rid that part of the country of a very desperate character.
