HC Deb 20 March 1882 vol 267 c1273

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether his attention has been called to the case of Major Mansergh, who advertised an auction of his effects to be held near Dundrum, county Tipperary, on the 8th March; whether, owing to the prevailing terrorism, the auctioneer employed was at the last moment deterred from conducting the sale; whether, in consequence, the auction had to be abandoned; and, whether he will take steps to prevent similar occurrences?


, in reply, said, that he understood that the sale in question had been abandoned, and that notices were posted stating that the reason for the abandonment of the sale was the state of terrorism in which the district was. He need scarcely say that the Government would use all means in their power to put down terrorism
