HC Deb 12 June 1882 vol 270 cc812-3

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the case of Dr. O'Brien, of Miltown Malbay, has been reconsidered; and also that of Mr. Doyle, of Kerry; and, whether these gentlemen have been, removed recently from Limerick to Kil-mainham Gaol, much further away from their native place?


Sir, His Excellency has reconsidered both these cases. In the case of Dr. O'Brien, he has decided that he may now safely be released, and the order for his release will be issued to-day. In the other case, that of Cornelius Doyle, he has decided that he cannot at present order his release. Both these persons were removed from Limerick to Kilmainham, as the former prison ceased to be a place for the detention of persons arrested under the Protection Act.
