HC Deb 29 July 1881 vol 264 c116

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether Messrs. Crotty and Marsh are confined in Limerick Gaol on suspicion of having been concerned in an attack on a house near Tomgraney (Clare) on the 29th of May; and, if so, whether representations have reached him to the effect that Messrs. Crotty and Marsh assert that they can prove, by the evidence of policemen and others, that they were at a considerable distance from Tomgraney, on their way to Nenagh Fair with cattle, when the house in question was attacked?

MR. W. E. FORSTER, in reply, said, there seemed to be reasonable ground for the suspicion on which the arrests were made; the evidence that had been laid before him confirmed him in that view; and when the time came to reconsider the matter, if there were any further information the case should be inquired into.
