Rev. Alick McClintock (1775-1836) & the Tithe War
Alick – or Alexander – McClintock was the second son of 'Bumper Jack' M'Clintock, of Drumcar, M.P., and his wife Patience (née Foster). In 1831, while serving as Rector of Newtownbarry (now Bunclody) in County Wexford, he became deeply embroiled in the Tithe Wars when 12 people were killed during what became known as the Battle of the Pound.
