Continuation of Limerick Quarter Sessions

During the ongoing Limerick Quarter Sessions, Judge Adams presided over a variety of county-defended civil bills. One such case involved George Boyle, a farmer from Dromlea, who sought compensation amounting to £18 for the alleged trover and conversion of a car that he claimed belonged to Edmund Boyle of Mountfize. The plaintiff argued that he had received the car back in 1893 from the defendant as payment for services rendered in horse training. However, in September of the previous year, the defendant borrowed the vehicle for a funeral and failed to return it thereafter. After careful consideration, His Honor granted a decree for £15 in favour of the plaintiff.

In a separate matter, Denis Baron Kilbreedy brought a lawsuit against William Hennessy of Gormanstown, seeking £19 in damages resulting from a breach of contract in a horse purchase. After reviewing the evidence presented, Judge Adams awarded a decree amounting to £31 and 10 shillings in favour of the plaintiff.

The Limerick Quarter Sessions continued to address a range of civil cases, providing fair judgments based on the facts and arguments presented by the parties involved.
