James 
Hardiman Burke
  formerly Burke, of St Clerans Army officer. mayor of Galway three times 1820-22. Prob. referred to: ANTHONY DALY Anthony Daly came from Closdoken. He was a strong man and leader of the "Ribbon men". In 1820, Daly was accused of shooting at James Hardiman Burke of Saint Clearns. At his trail in Galway, Daly said that it was easily known that he was innocent because although he only had one eye, if he had fired he wouldn't have missed him! Never the less he was sentenced to be hanged on Hill Seafinn Cave two miles from Kilchreest. He was brought from Galway jail on a horse and cart seated on his own coffin. A large crowd came to his hanging. Raftery, the famous poet was there and composed a poem. Daly's last request was a long jump. Today there is a monument on the hill and a verse of the poem is inscribed on it.
