From Peels speech on the State of Ireland as reported in the morng. Chronicle of April 27th. 1816

"The trials of the murderers of a magistrate in that
county (Tipperary) exhibited a wonderful view of the
character of its population ...... of their detestation
of any man who by giving evidence assisted in
giving effect to the laws.

"Though no less than £13,000 reward was offered
"for the discovery of the murderers he really believed than none
"of the evidence which had been given was to be attributed
"to that inducement"

Of the feeling of abhorrence entertained against
those who gave evidence there could not be a stronger
proof than this — a man who was condemned to
death was offered a pardon on condition that he would
give evidence and after having actually given a part
of his testimony, retracted it in open court, his wife
having prayed him on her knees, with tears, that
he would be hanged rather than give evidence. —
