William noticed part of a coat sticking out of the gap, so he went for his neighbours Patrick and Thomas Lydon, and later Patrick Cloherty and Patrick Concannon from Truskey joined them at what turned out to be a grave.

William Duffy rode on horseback into Fr O’Meehan in Montpellier Terrace to inform him of the tragedy.
