§ CAPTAIN M'CALMONT
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the account of an outrage committed on Saturday last near Killainey on a respectable farmer named Randal M'Sweeny, as given in The Daily News of March 1st, is correct; and, whether two men, afterwards arrested in connection with the outrage, were cheered by a large crowd on being escorted to gaol by the police?
THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. JOHN MORLEY)
The published account of the outrage is substantially correct, except that the wound is reported as not being of a dangerous character. Two men have been arrested and identified by the injured man. I 1766 have made inquiry as to the incident referred to in the last paragraph of the Question, but have not yet received information.
