Newspapers and journals: The Curraglass Reward, 1825

Whereas, the stables of the Police Establishment near the village of Curriglass, in the Barony of Kinnatalloon and County of Cork, were set on fire about the hour of Ten o'clock on the night of Thursday the 12th inst., by some incendiaries as yet unknown, without effecting any material injury. And whereas said stables were again set on fire, about the hour of Twelve o'clock, on the night of Wednesday the 18th inst., in three places as the same time, and totally consumed; but the horses attached to that establishment were rescued from destruction by Mr Kittson Chief Constable, at the imminent risque of his own life. Now, we the undersigned, holding in abhorrence such atrocities, and in order to bring the perpetrators of the same, do hereby offer several sums annexed to our names respectfully, or such part thereof as H. Gumbleton, Esq, the Rev. J.W. Edgar, and Wm. Kirby, Esq., Magistrates of this county, shall think fit, to any person or persons, who will within six calendar months from the date, prosecute to conviction, or give such information as may lead to the conviction of the person or persons concerned in these flagitious outrages, which, we are satisfied, (by the strict investigation made by the Magistrates) result from private malice of a few individuals in that Village, or in the immediate neighbourhood, and not from any general disposition to disturbances in the Barony, hitherto so tranquil. Dated this 28th day of May 1825.
Names include:
H. Gumbleton, JP: £20-0-0
R. W. Gumbleton: £20-0-0
Rd. Gumbleton: £10-0-0
R.H. Gumbleton: £5-0-0
