THOMAS BOYLE. I keep the Robin Hood public-house. On the 13th of June I saw Donovan in the street, dressed in a waistcoat with sleeves; he is very similar in appearance to the prisoner.[1]

IRHB comments

The Robin Hood pub in question must be that in Church Lane, St. Giles, for the case of violent theft or highway robbery with which the case is concerned took place in George Street, St. Giles. The victim chases the perpetrator to Russell Street.
