Athenry News in "The Connacht Journal: May 17, 1824"


Cock-Fighting 
We understand the Cock-fighting we mentioned in our Paper of Thursday last, between the Gentlemen of Athenry and Tuam is off; however, we have been informed the Gentlemen of Athenry are ready to receive an offer from any town in this County, or in any adjoining County, to shew twenty one Cocks and fifteen Stags, for one hundred guineas the main and five Guineas a battle.

To Be Let 
In Divisions from the first day of May last, for one year, The lands of Movilla, 
Containing two thousand Acres, or thereabouts. The above Lands are well known to possess a superior quality for Fattening, well enclosed and sub-divided, by six feet walls, with iron gates to each Park. Proposals (if in writing post paid) to William Burke, Esq. Ballydugan, or Patrick O’Connor, Esq., Newgarden, Tuam; who will attend at Manahan’s hotel, Loughrea, on the 26th of May, to declare the tenant or tenants.
