HC Deb 27 February 1891 vol 350 c1844

, in the absence of Mr. MAC NEILL: I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the relief works to which he recently referred as instituted for the benefit of the inhabitants of the parish of Ardara county Donegal, are seven miles distant from that parish; whether he is aware that an engineer named Gahan, who is employed in the Government relief works at Garrick, visited the parish of Ardara about a fortnight ago with a view to the making of the roads by the Government in the neighbourhood for the purpose of relief, but that hitherto no step in this direction has been taken; and whether, having regard to the fact that the fulfilment of his promise made at Ardara, that the Government would cut a road through the hill of Glengrish, would give employment to between 200 and 300 people in the neighbourhood of Ardara, and, to the destitute condition of the people of this neighbourhood, any measures are to be taken for their immediate sustenance and relief?


Perhaps the hon. Member will give me further notice of the question.
