The County Limerick hunt was halted once again yesterday at Rock Barton, near Lord Fermoy’s residence, due to the intervention of members of the United Irish League and other protesters. The protesters approached the Master of the hunt, Captain Wise, and asked him to prevent certain objectionable individuals from participating in the hunt. Captain Wise, however, stated that these individuals were members of the hunt and had paid their subscriptions, so he could not comply with the protesters’ demands. As a result, opposition to the hunt continued, leading Captain Wise to eventually call off the event by withdrawing the dogs.
