Mullingar Assizes - Administering of Oaths - Cornelius Maguire, a private in the North Cork Militia and Hugh Molloy, were tried on an indictment, charging that Hugh Molloy at Athlone, in the County of Westmeath, seditiously intending to disturb the public peace, did administer a certain Oath to James Connell, of said place; and that the said Corn. Maguire, with the like seditious intention, at Atholone, in the County of Westmeath aforesaid, was present, aiding and abetting; which said Oath was to the purport and effect following, that is to say; ‘To be true to the Emperor of France, Napoleon; to assist the French forces in overturning the Government of Ireland; to plant the Tree of Liberty in Ireland till its branches reached the coast, and its leaves became united: against the Statute in such as made and provided, and against the Peace of our Sovereign Lord the King, his Crown and dignity. The Statute on which the indictment was founded by which the administering of unlawful Oaths for seditious purposes, or to disturb the public peace is punished by transportation for life; and the taking of such Oath is punished by transportation for seven years. The facts of the case were stated: James Connell, examined by Mr. Espinasse. Was then produced as a Witness, to support the Indictment, and he deposed to the following purport: That he and his family lived under Lord Castlemain near Athlone, hearing that there were seditious meetings in the neighbourhood of Athlone, he went to Lord Castlemain’s house, and disclosed his suspicions to his Lordship, Lord Castlemain told him he was going to Dublin, for a short time, and advised him to make enquiry into the business, and to get himself sworn in to the association - that soon after he met with Hugh Molloy, and Cornelius Maguire, the soldier, and they went into a public house, kept by one Daly, in Athlone. After drinking some porter, Molloy entered into conversation about the times, took out a book, and administered an Oath to the witness - the soldier Maguire, he said, stood with his back to the door, and could hear and see everything that was going forward. - Molloy gave him a ticket and told him, by that he would be admitted into any Meeting of the Society. On Lord Castlemain’s return to his seat, near Athlone, the witness said he waited on his Lordship and communicated the whole of what he had given in evidence…...The Jury found both Prisoners guilty and they were sentenced to be transported for life. - Freeman’s Journal 5 October 1813.
