HC Deb 16 May 1881 vol 261 c566

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, On what grounds an iron police but has been erected at Kilgefin, county Roscommon; whether there are not three police barracks within a short distance of the iron hut; and, whether there is any one living near the hut requiring special protection?


Sir, a hut has been erected at the place referred to in the Question. There are, it is true, two police barracks at a distance of three and a-half, and one seven miles from this hut; but there are persons living near requiring special protection, which is one of the reasons that have led to the determination to erect the hut.
