§ MR. DEASY
asked Mr. Solicitor General for Ireland, Whether it is intended that the three Orangemen charged with the murder of Francis Hughes, a Catholic, within a few perches of the Orange Hall at Keady, county Armagh, shall be tried at the assizes of Armagh, in which county the jury panel is very largely composed of members of the Orange Society; and, whether it is intended to change the venue so as to ensure an impartial trial?
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. WALKER)
said, that, after careful consideration, the Attorney General had come to the conclusion that there was no necessity for a change of venue in trying the accused in this case.
