Notes
The following headline appeared in the Cork Examiner on June 21st 1843:
MORE PRIEST HUNTING
Ballineen Petty Sessions
The trial of Fr. Sexton before the Bench of Petty Sessions on June 16th, 1843 was the first real clash between Judge and Priest. The crime for which Fr. Sexton was tried for “was the act of having an avowed disturber of his congregation evicted from the Chapel by Sergeant Meehan a person it would seem to have been in high favour with the judges sitting on the bench”.
