§ MR. TOTTENHAM
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If he can state the place of residence of John Ryan, a suspect, recently confined in Dundalk Gaol on reasonable suspicion of murder; what is the name of the murdered person; and, whether the murder took place in the neighbourhood where Ryan now resides?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
Sir, John Ryan is reported to me to reside in the town-land of Ballykeeran, parish of Lecker-rig, barony of Loughrea, county of Gal-way. Ryan was not confined, as stated in the Question, on reasonable suspicion of murder, but on reasonable suspicion of being accessory to murder. I must decline to give the further information asked for in the Question.
