Stcabt, in his Historical Memoirs of Annoc/h, " in almost
every sortie made by the famous Murray, was always in the
thickest of the battle, and yet escaped unhurt. When, how-
ever, the garrison had received information that the Irish
army had commenced its retreat. Pooler looked through an
embrasure in the battlements, in hope of witnessing its final
departure. At that moment, arandoni shot from one of those
who had lingered in the rear struck him on the head and killed
him on the spot, the last man slain at the siege of Derry." In

1689, published in Grahim's Ireland Preservid, Pooler is
