Today in Irish History: 30th October 1846 – The Cork Examiner reports: “Death By Starvation”.
“A Coroners inquest was held on the lands of Redwood, in the Parish of Lorha, on yestetday, the 24th, on the body of Daniel Hayes, who for several days subsisted almost on the refuse of vegetables, and went out on Friday morning in quest of something in the shape of food, but he had not gone far when he was obliged to lie down, and, melancholy to relate, was found dead some time afterward.”
