Miss Catherine Ryan, a resident of Nicholas Street in Limerick, was recently charged with the adulteration of milk. However, Judge Adams, who presided over the case at the Quarter Sessions, exonerated Miss Ryan from all blame. She had stated that she bought the milk from a dealer in Park.
While no reporter was present in court to cover the case, a concerned citizen has written to The Limerick Echo to draw attention to this matter, as Miss Ryan’s character could suffer in the absence of public knowledge about her exoneration. The anonymous writer, who signed their letter “Justice,” urged the public to take note of this important development.
It is not clear why charges were brought against Miss Ryan in the first place or what evidence was presented against her. However, it is clear that Judge Adams found her to be innocent of any wrongdoing. This case highlights the importance of accurate and fair reporting of court proceedings so that the public can be fully informed of the facts and judgments made.
