HC Deb 24 November 1884 vol 294 c236

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If he is aware that a tax for the maintenance of extra police is now being levied upon the occupiers in the parish of Currans, Farranfore, county Kerry, which is the parish in which Constables Kennedy and Donovan were quartered as extra police until within the past few days; whether the said tax is being levied, although no grave offence has been committed in the parish for a considerable time, except the offence of which the Inspector General has convicted Constables Kennedy and Donovan; and, whether the Lord Lieutenant, under the circumstances, will remit the tax?


The men referred to formed a part of the police force at Farranfore. That is a permanent station, and is not within the Currans proclaimed district at all, but in another parish which pays no part of the tax.
