HC Deb 22 June 1882 vol 271 c22

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether a placard calling on the people of Innishowen to encourage home manufacture was torn down by the police in Carndonagh, County Donegal, on May 28th; and, if so, on what grounds did the police act?


Sir, I find that a constable of the Royal Irish Constabulary did take down such a placard in Carndonagh; but on reconsideration he posted it up again within a space of half-an-hour. He has been told by his superior officer to act with more discretion in future.
