HC Deb 13 March 1883 vol 277 cc364-5

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Irish Executive have received from the clergy and people of the parish of Geevagh, County Sligo, a Memorial, pointing out that no case of violence of any kind whatever had occurred within the parish during the course of the recent agitation; that the only unusual incident there was the posting, some time ago, of boycotting notices, and praying the Government to remove the extra police which had been quartered on the parish; also pointing out that Thomas Curreen, of Geevagh, accused of the murder of Henry East, in the County Roscommon, has been acquitted; and praying that no part of the parish may be assessed in respect of compensation levied for a murder committed in a part of the country so remote from the parish of Geevagh; and, whether the Irish Executive will grant the prayer of this Memorial?


Sir, I have not received the Memorial referred to, nor can I ascertain that it has been received by any other Member of the Irish Executive.
