A Spellacy story from “Gleanings from the West of Ireland”…

It’s a tough read. Not a pretty story, but a real one.  So think about before you go there.

A lead I found under the Google Book Search… Tim Spellacy in 1850 who the coroner said died of exposure and exhaustion  in County Clare in the vicinity of Kilrush and Ballykett.
