HC Deb 11 August 1890 vol 348 cc492-3
MR. O'KELLYfor 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 Ballina 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?


The Local Government Board are informed by the acting clerk of the Ballina Union and by the honorary secretary of the Ballina Dispensary Committee that no complaint has been made either to the Guardians or to the committee with reference to the alleged neglect referred to.
