HC Deb 24 November 1884 vol 294 c247

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the four policemen acting as protection escort to John Cassidy, of Crossara, Ballyhaunis, county Mayo, are charged as extra police to the district; and, whether the district is not peaceable and orderly?


The protection party are not charged as extra police to the district. They are a part of the county force. The district is at present peaceable; but the local police authorities do not think it would be prudent at present to withdraw protection from Cassidy.
