Arson in Cavan 1886

Cavan is not a county associated with the Buggy name and a 19th century inquiry into jury assizes outlines how a George Buggy was charged with arson. The Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland was questions as to whether he knew about the number of jurors sworn in at a spring session of Cavan assizes. During this querying it was outlined that Robert Bell and George Buggy were charged with setting fire to a byre in Clonloskan.[1] This is the name of a townland in Kilmore civil parish. The question was posed in Parliament on 18 March 1886.
