HC Deb 12 March 1891 vol 351 cc774-5

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that Father Dumphy, the parish priest of Arklow, had on Sunday the 1st of March broken through the ranks of the Constabulary in the streets of Arklow, taken hold of District Inspector Tottenham, and assaulted him, calling at the same time on the mob to follow him; and what course the Government intend to pursue in relation to this case?


The Constabulary authorities report that on the occasion referred to, the action and language of Father Dumphy were of a violent character, but no special course is proposed to be taken.
