Well, here's something interesting regarding the old Balrothery brewery, I got a hold of this via a TCD database, it's a classified from Hoey's Dublin Mercury (Dublin, Ireland), Thursday, December 27, 1770; Issue 653.

While we're posting old articles, here is an interesting little snippet from The Irish Times of Tuesday, April 12, 1859.

"the jury found a verdict in accordance with the facts"

as opposed to the usual verdict which are in accordance with the speed and viscosity of the jam that runs through their brains?

poor old west. A lesson to us all.

I did a quick search on Mr Landy from the snippit that RichieH had put up. I didn't find him but I found this <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="www.dublin1850.com/porter1912/page02.html">www.dublin1850.com/porter1912/page02.html
If you flick down there was a relative (as it would be 80 years later) with the same name who was a spirit merchant but best of all is the occupation of Miss Landy.
It certainly beats the s**t out of my job title.
