HC Deb 19 June 1884 vol 289 c803

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the district of Ardagh, in the county of Limerick, is quite free from crime or outrage; and, if so, why extra police were sent there; and, to what account has the cost of those police been charged?


The district named is free from actual outrage; but it has been considered necessary to strengthen the police-station by two constables for special patrolling for the protection of a gentleman whose life is believed to be in danger. The extra men are a part of the county force and are chargeable as such, and not to the district of Ardagh.
