Hi There,

You may have probably found this out by now but my father has a newspaper cutting from the Impartial Reporter for the year of 1963 or 1964 which has an article about the last public hanging in Enniskillen. The hanging took place on August 9th, 1849. The two men were Thomas Wilson and Thomas Kerr who were hung for the murder of Thomas Wilson's brother, John Wilson.

If you need any further information on the event I am only to happy to forward it on to you.

Regards

Colleen
