HC Deb 20 March 1884 vol 286 c274

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Why Mr. Thomas F. Roe. J.P., Carrolton, Dunmore, county Galway, is allowed police protection; how many constables attend him; and, how many outrages have been committed in the district within the last three months?


Sir, Mr. Roe is allowed police protection in consequence of apprehension by him of danger, owing to a feeling against him in the district. His protection force consists of three men. Three outrages, consisting of two incendiary fires and a threatening letter, have been committed in the district during the past three months. The protection is not under the Prevention of Crime Act.
