Died on 2nd May 1783 - Mr. Henry Woddle, Merchant of this town, who acquired a large fortune by his dealing, which he bequeathed to several Dublin Hospitals. When he was being buried, in Carlow Graveyard, his remains were several times insulted by an enraged mob on the way to the place of internment, on account of his not considering the poor of this parish where he made so much of his money. His coffin was laid down on the street several times, as the cortege approached the graveyard.
