HC Deb 16 June 1882 vol 270 cc1425-6

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it is true that Mr. William Clarke, of Rathleague, the coroner for the Queen's County, dropped dead in his residence on the 11th instant; who was the proper official to hold an inquest, if necessary, upon the body; whether Baron Dowse refused to fiat the presentment, at the Queen's County Assizes at Maryborough, for the salary of Dr. Robert O'Kelly, late of Ballyroan, Queen's County, but now residing at Ballyragget, in Kilkenny; whether there is any coroner for the Queen's County at present; and, whether there will be two writs de coronatore eligendo issued to the sheriff, as on the death of one coroner and the ouster of another?


I telegraphed for information, but have not yet received it.
