The said Examinate aged Thirty yeares or thereabouts beinge duly sworne and Examined saith That in the first yeare of the Rebellion, (but the tyme of the yeare hee certainly knoweth not) The Lord Clanrickard the Lord Ranalagh and Sir Charles Coote with their fforces, had a randezvouz at the fford of Garroure vpon the River sucke betwixt the Countyes of Roscomon and Galway, & that the abovenamed Thomas mc Egan (beinge a soldier in the Lord Ranalagh’s troope) was at the said Randezvouz, who spyinge two ffootmen going vpon a bogge towards a wood therevnto adjoyninge, rid out of the field wherein the Randevouz was towards the said ffootemen, judging (as this Examinate believes) that they were Rebells, & when hee came to the Bogge dismounted and went towards them on ffoote, And when hee was come within shott of them hee presented his Carbine & gave ffire at them. but his Carabine not goeinge of the said two ffootmen, turned backe vpon him and killed him. Who the said two ffootmen were hee (the Examinate) certainly knoweth not, beinge at <A> such a distance from them that hee could not know them either by their ffaces or their Cloathes though hee saw them comittinge the Murder. But

fol. 110v

But hee heard, both then and afterwards That the said Two persons were Hugh mc Garroure and <B> Richard Mc Cormocke, & there were some persons then vpon the place who said they did discover & know them to bee the said Persons. Beinge demanded whether Con Kelly was at or neare the place where the said Murder was Comitted, the Examinate saith that hee knoweth not, But hee is sure that the said Garroure & Cormacke were vnder the Comand of the said Con Kelly, hee beinge one of the first that was in Armes in the Barrony of Athlone, & saith that the said Con Kelly did vse to bee often thereabouts, haveinge Land at the place where the Randezvouze was. His Cause of knowledge of what hee hath deposed is, That hee was present at the said Randevouze and saw the Murder Comitted, & heard & knoweth the rest of the particulers to bee true. And further the Examinate doth not depose.
