Kilkenny December 3rd. On the 25th ult. Departed this life at Athy, in the 80th year of his age (thirty five whereof he had been seated in the President’s chair of the Antient Society of Porter Drinkers in the above town) James Purcell, commonly known by the name of Baron Purcell of Loakman. His death was occasioned (as his last breath declared) by the opposition given him by a young foreigner (whom he had introduced into the above society) who had for some time past been endeavouring to supplant him in the chair. But so anxious was the poor man to disappoint the ungrateful attempts of the foreigner, that in his last moments he had most of the members summoned in order to chuse (sic) a successor, and to render the poor creature’s departure as easy as possible they rejected the foreigner, and chose a person of his recommendation; and he shortly expired in great composure.
On opening his will the following humorous bequest was found in it. “And I do hereby direct that my body shall be preceded to the grave by twelve of the best performers on the small pipes which can be conveniently had, to whom I will one crown each for their trouble in playing my favourite tune Granuiwail (sic). And I do solemnly exclude Stephen the Tinker out of the number, as a base musician.” He also bequeathed a Butt of Porter to be drunk on his grave (or if the clergyman would not permit that) or the Market Cross.
The greatest concourse of people that ever was known at any funeral in those parts appeared at his. The pipers attended in pursuance of his will, but would not accept the crown bequeathed them as above, as the Baron in his life-time had been a capital performer in their way. And forty five members of the Porter Society, with the Chairman at their head, marched in the uniforms of their body before the cortege and the whole of the melancholy ceremony was concluded with that decency and propriety for which this Antient Society was ever remarkable.
