Kenniff Courthouse





After their release from St Helena Island prison, the brothers Patrick and James Kenniff continued to steal cattle and horses and held up a general store in Yuleba. In March 1902 police at Roma took out a warrant against the brothers for stealing a pony. A Police Officer and Station Manager set out to find the Kenniff Brothers and were later found dead.  The Kenniff Brothers were remanded at the Kenniff Courthouse to stand trial for the murder of the men in 1902.  Patrick was hanged in 1903 and James was released from prison in 1914.
