Extract of a Letter from Captain Scobie, of the Reay Fencibles, to Lieutenant General Lake, dated Dunshaughlin, Sunday Morning, 27th May, 1798. " THE Division, consisting of five Companies of his Majesty's Reay Re- " giment of Fencible Infantry, which I have the Honour to command, ar- rived here Yesterday Morning, according to Route, accompanied by Lord " Fingal's Troop of Yeomen Cavalry, Captain Preston's Troop of Cavalry, " Lower Kells ditto, and Captain Molloy's Company of Yeomen Infantry. " At Half past three P. M. I was informed that a considerable Force of the " Rebel Insurgents had taken Station on Tara Hill; I instantly detached three " Companies of our Divifion with one Field Piece, and the above Corps of " Yeomanry, to the Spot, under the Command of Captain M'Lean of the " Reays, the Issue of which has answered my most sanguine Expectation. " THE REBELS fled in all Directions, THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY " were found dead in the Field this Morning, among whom is their Com- " mander, in full Uniform ; many more were killed and wounded. " Our Loss is inconsiderable, being 9 Rank and File killed,— 16 Rank " and File wounded." DUBLIN : Printed by GEORGE GRIERSON, Printer to the King's Most Excellent Majesty.
