The History and Topography of the County of Clare by James Frost

Part III. History of the County of Clare
Chapter 20. Depositions of Protestant Settlers, 1642

Depositions relating to Ogonello

After the Deposition we have here abstracted, only a few others, relating to the county of Clare, remain to be noticed. One of these refers to Ogonnello, and was made by Thomas Andrews of Ballinagleragh, who alleges that he was deprived of his surgical instruments, drugs, pots, glasses, etc., and lost a debt due by Thomas Bastard of Ogonnello. He states further, that John Burke, Esq., of Ballymulroony, pretending much friendship for him, persuaded him to deposit his goods in his custody. Desiring some time afterwards to take them away, he was set upon by Burke’s wife Honora, by his son John, and by Donogh M‘Namara , and assaulted. He deposes that Donogh Oge O’Molony of Ballymoloney assaulted him, on the highway, and robbed him of £40 worth of property.
