HC Deb 20 March 1882 vol 267 c1300

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he had heard that three gross outrages had just occurred in Ireland as reported in the evening papers; whether he had heard that Mr. George Crawford, of Stirrups-town, near Clonmellon, was driving to church with his family yesterday morning, was fired at and seriously wounded, and now lying in a precarious condition; whether he had heard that between twelve and one o'clock this morning the police on their rounds, in Tighe-street, Dublin, came upon the body of a young man lying insensible in the roadway, who had been shot just below the ear, a wound three inches deep being discovered; and, lastly, whether he had heard that Sub-Inspector Doherty had been shot by a revolver at Boyle, and was not expected to recover?


said, he had heard of the murder, but could give no information as to the motives for it. He was unable to answer the latter part of the Question, as to which the hon. and gallant Gentleman had better give Notice. He had not yet read the evening papers.
