Article in The Armagh Guardian, 23 December 1845
A SERIOUS EVIL.--On Monday last the Rev. Isaac Ashe, Incumbent of Coal Island, county of Tyrone, was assaulted by a boatman, quite unknown to him, in a state of intoxication, without any provocation whatever. He had pursued him along the quay, crying out, " Are you a clergyman ? What religion are you of?" He forcibly grabbed the walking staff which the rev. gentleman carried, and endeavored to wrest it from him. Several gentlemen and others assembled, and endeavored to force him into some place of confinement until the police could be sent from Stewartstown, a distance of three miles, but the fellow struggled so hard, and gave so much annoyance that he was suffered to get off. A short time ago a large stone was thrown into one of the sitting rooms of Mr. Robinson, Inspector of the Board of Works, residing in the village. The want of a police station is sadly felt in this place, where so many of the worst description of the lowest class are employed at the collieries, &c., and the peaceable inhabitants are continually subjected to annoyance. Several applications have been made to the authorities in Dublin to have a few policemen stationed in Coal Island, but all in vain. It is much to be deplored that the Government should refuse compliance with the reasonable demand for protection alluded to in the foregoing note. The magistrates of the neighbourhood of Dungannon and Coal Island should ask the Lord Lieutenant, by memorial, for the force required, and if he shall refuse to grant it, the conduct of his Excellency should be brought before the House of Parliament.--E. Packet.
