Melancholy accident

At Garry Kennedy lead mines, County Tipperary, on last Tuesday, Thomas Doyle, a miner, had his leg broken by a portion of the mine falling in. He was conveyed to Killaloe, on Wednesday, and remained all night in the boat in great pain. He was brought to Limerick on Thursday, and is now in Barrington’s Hospital under the care of Surgeon Gore.
