HC Deb 05 August 1890 vol 347 c1918
DR. FITZGERALD (Longford, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if his attention has been called to the death of Bridget Hoban, of Coolarn, Ballinatimon Union, County Mayo; if he is aware that the death has been caused through the neglect of the officials of the Union; that when the husband of the woman went to the doctor with an order to attend the wife on the 2nd of July, the doctor told him to go to hell; and if he will cause inquiry to be made into the circumstances of this case?


I cannot find that there is any Union in Ireland of the name mentioned. If the hon. Member will renew the question, stating the correct name of the Union and the name of the Medical Officer against whom the allegation has been brought, the necessary inquiries shall be made.
