§ MR. JAMES RICHARDSON
asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, Whether, on Saturday the 26th ult. certain evictions were carried into effect upon an estate situated in the townland of Carran, and adjoining townlands, in the county of Armagh; and, if he will state the number of families evicted, and the number of police present on the occasion?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. LAW)
Sir, there were no evictions in the townlands in question on the 26th ultimo; but I find that on the 25th ultimo, seven families were evicted for non-payment of rent. There were no police employed on the occasion. There was no excitement, and the tenants quietly gave up possession to the sheriff's bailiffs.
