August 1806

Notwithstanding the manner in which the outrage between some of the military which lately took place at Tullamore, we are happy in having it in our power to state, that mischief has not exceeded the loss of more than one life on the part of the German legion, and the like on the part of the militia – twenty-one of the German Legion, and eleven of the militia have been wounded, but none of them mortally.
(Freeman’s Journal, August 12th 1806)

End of August Ballinamore the harvest began, but this business too is carried on very wretchedly (7th Line Battalion)
(Hering, Johann Fredrich, Journal, Irish Historical Studies, xxv,no. 99 (may 1987))
