§ MR. MURRAY
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If Patrick Quinlan and William Quinlan have been recently released from Limerick Prison, where they were confined on reasonable suspicion of assaulting and wounding a person by night; whether, previous to their release, any communications were made to the person assaulted and wounded by them; and, 18 whether it is intended to put them on their trial for the offence?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
Sir, these men have been released. I am not aware that any communications were made to the person assaulted, or that it is intended to put them on their trial for the offence. They were both arrested in May, 1881, and consequently had been under detention for about 12 months.
