§ DR. TANNER
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that three young men, named Patrick Rahilly, Jeremiah Healy, and Michael Healy, of Headford, County Kerry, were summarily 1072 arrested on the 1st instant for an alleged assault on a man named Williams, of Brewsterfield; and that, after being remanded for eight days, Mr. Rahilly was discharged, there being no evidence against him; whether his attention has been drawn to the report of the trial, from which it appears that Williams had assaulted Jeremiah Healy, and was fined £3 and bound over to keep the peace for 12 months; and whether it is intended to take any action with regard to the conduct of the police in this case?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The three men named in the question were arrested on a warrant on sworn information. One of the defendants was discharged, and the other two were fined. Williams was fined for assaulting Rahilly.
