HC Deb 19 March 1891 vol 351 cc1436-7
MR. J. F. X. O'BRIEN (Mayo, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that great distress prevails in the parishes of Kiltimagh and Kilkelly, in the County of Mayo; whether it is his intention to mitigate the distress in these parishes by means of the relief works proposed to be started at Blackloon and Kilbeagh, in the same county; whether he is aware that the latter places are a long distance from the former two places; whether he can say how many hundreds of names the police have given as needing relief in Kilkelly and Kilmovee, and how many have been relieved in these places; and whether, considering the numbers in need of relief in Kilkelly and Kilmovee, he will consider the propriety of starting some relief works in that neighbourhood?


I am sorry that I have not yet been able to obtain the information that would enable me to answer the question. The question only appeared on the Paper yesterday. Perhaps the hon. Gentleman will put it down for Monday.


I will repeat it on Monday.
