HC Deb 10 March 1884 vol 285 c1043

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether Mr. Charles Jones Henry, of Artarmon, Linadell, county Sligo, deputy collector of county cess, some time since informed the police at Breaffry Station that, while driving home from a fair, he was fired at, wounded, and robbed of a sum of £81, being county cess which he had collected; and, whether his statement was investigated by Colonel Forbes, S.R.M. and Mr. G. F. Molony, R.M., and what conclusion they arrived at, particularly with regard to the attack alleged to have been made, and the wounds alleged to have been inflicted?


Sir, it is true that about a year ago Mr. Henry alleged that he was attacked and robbed, and that his complaint was investigated by Colonel Forbes, who was not satisfied that any such occurrence had taken place. Mr. Molony, Resident Magistrate, states, however, that he could come to no conclusion but that the alleged outrage had been committed.


May I ask whether this outrage is included in the Returns?

[No reply.]
