§ COLONEL SAUNDERSON (Armagh, N.)
I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether he is aware that, at the Glin Branch of the National League, the following resolution was proposed and passed unanimously, on Sunday, 29th June:—That the branch condemns the continued arbitrary action of the Knight of Glin in again refusing the offer of a fair rent from Mr. John G. Fitzgerald, one of his oldest and most respectable tenants, and hopes, even now, he will see the folly of carrying out another death sentence on his property;and whether, a week afterwards, certain horses were killed and barbarously mutilated on this evicted farm of the Knight of Glin?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. MADDEN,) Dublin University
According to a report in the Limerick Leader, it is the case that a resolution was unanimously passed at a meeting of the Glin Branch of the National League in the terms stated in the question. I am informed that on the morning of July 8 a colt was found killed, and two other colts stabbed in several places, apparently with a hay-fork, on the farm of the Knight of Glin, from which a man of the name of Hayns had been evicted in 1882.
