HC Deb 12 June 1882 vol 270 c825

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If it is a fact that, on Sunday the 28th of May, a notice which was posted on the chapel of Raheen-more, county Westmeath, requesting the people of that locality to assemble to cut the turf of Mr. William Maloney, a suspect now detained in Enniskillen Prison, was torn down by the police, by which act many persons were intimidated from rendering to Mr. Maloney such assistance; and, whether the Government sanction that action on the part of the police?


I find that the sub-constable at Raheenmore did take down such a notice. There would appear to have been no necessity for his tearing down the notice, and he has been called on for an explanation.
