Report of insurrection in grounds of Viceregal Lodge

A report has come in of a disturbance in the grounds of the Viceregal Lodge.

A gaggle of peasants, estimated to number some two hundred, armed with sticks, pikestaffes and other accoutrements, made their way from nearby O'Flaherty's public house and proceded to make encroachments onto the estate.

Her Majesty's recently appointed Viceroy, Lord Hewson of Killiney, formerly the well known ballad singer Paul O'Bono, had only taken up residence in the Lodge in recent weeks.

The peasants, many of whom appeared to be inebriated, set fire to Lord Hewson's prize collection of rhodedendrons and cries of 'fealtoir' ('traitor')were overheard. Sticks and stones were thrown at the Viceregal Lodge and several windows were broken.

Fortuitiously, a passing peeler overheard the disturbance and notified the authorities by telephone (curiously enough, as that particularly mode of communication will not be invented until one hundred years after the events described in this missive, which as you can see is scrawled on parchment ).

Lord Hewson and his household made their escape on a horse drawn carriage, flanked by redcoats armed with rifles. Several rounds of gunshot were discharged but the peasants made their escape and are believed to be hiding in the nearby Wicklow mountains.

I wasn't involved in this insurrection Calluna! I condemn it, as do all right thinking people.

Embrace the future, guys! There were no telephones in 1798, it's true, but there were primitive steam engines. Yes, there were. And maybe someone invented a primitive steam powered tube... or series of tubes... for conveying messages like this one that saved Sir Bono's ass.
