HC Deb 04 June 1891 vol 353 c1622

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been directed to the letter of the Most Rev. Dr. O'Donnell, Lord Bishop of Raphoe, in the National Press, of June 1, describing the great suffering of the people in the parishes of the Rosses, Gweeharra, Gweedore, and Falcarragh, and complaining that no relief works had been instituted in this the most poverty-stricken district of Donegal; and whether any steps will be taken by the Government to give immediate employment to the people of this locality?


The condition of the districts mentioned has engaged, in common with other localities, the careful attention of the Government, who I am glad to say have found no necessity for the opening of relief works there.
