HC Deb 20 December 1888 vol 332 c861
MR. LEAMY (Sligo, S.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he is aware that the pier and harbour constructed at Keel, in Achill, County Mayo, out of the funds of the recent Relief Act, under the supervision of the Board of Works, has gone to pieces, especially that portion of it constructed and superintended by Messrs. Peddy and Cowen, the latter County Surveyor of Mayo; and, if it is true that Mr. Cowen, County Surveyor, Westport, has now given it by contract to a Coastguard pensioner to be patched up; and, if so, why the Board of Works has not, in the first instance, intrusted the execution of this important work to competent hands?


I am making inquiries on the subject of this Question.
