From The Cork Examiner, 13 August 1861 -

BURGLARY.--Sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning,
the shop of Jeremiah Ahern, publican, Parliament-street, was
entered, and a variety of articles stolen therefrom, including a coat,
silver watch and chain, razor, some copper money, and a lady's
shawl fastener. No clue to the perpetrators was discovered until
about half-past 12 o'clock this day when Sub-Constable Kilfedder,
detective force, happened to pass through the North Main-street,
and saw at the corner of Peter's Church-lane James Murphy alias
John Leahy, who had in his hand a silver watch. Suspecting him as
connected with the perpetration of the robbery, the Sub-Constable
took him into custody and brought him before Messrs. Shaw and
Orme, R.M., at three o'clock. The watch was then identified as that
stolen ; also the fastener subsequently found on the prisoner who
turns out to be a returned convict. After hearing evidence, the
Magistrates committed him to take his trial before the Recorder.
