One newsclipping, numbered page '2' at top left of page. Printed at top of sheet: Reprinted from St. Stephen's Review. This image depicts the Scullabogue massacre (an atrocity committed in Scullabogue, Wexford on 5 June 1798, when insurgents held (mostly Protestant) noncombatant men, women and children in a barn which was then set alight; those trying to escape the barn were shot, stabbed by pikes or beaten to death. At least 100 people were known to have died. Text is lacking from beneath this image (see related images at PD D31 as the text below these reprints refers to Gladstone's 2nd Home Rule Bill, introduced in January 1893).
