PLACE - Belleville Athenry  
Captain Giles Eyre Lambert was Landlord of Moore Park, an estate next to Castle Lambert - Shot In 1869 by Peter Barrett, whose parents had lived on the estate, but had recently been evicted. It is said that Barrett hide in a Lime Tree and waited for Capt. Lambert to come out. When he did he shot him in his heart. Lambert slumped and Barrett left him for dead. However the bullet was stopped by his Gold Watch and although unconscious for a time, he fully recovered. Barrett made his escape  
Catching the train to Dublin, where he was arrested.  
When the case opened in Galway it attracted worldwide coverage and was thought of as the trial of the century. Peter Barrett was defended by the Fenian's lawyer Isaac Butt. The jury failed to reach agreement and there was a re-trial in Dublin,  
again there was disagreement.  
At the third trial he was found not-guilty based on the fact he could have not been able to shoot Giles Lambert at the time his watch stopped, an then still be able to board the Dublin train at the time he apparently did.  
After the trial it emerged that railway employ had lied about the train's time, which had in fact been some six minutes late. It also seems that Capt. Lambert's watch had continued ticking for at least
