HC Deb 28 May 1891 vol 353 cc1200-1

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that a protection sea wall at the village of Lahinch, County Clare, and several houses have been swept away; whether any memorial or resolutions from the people of the district in reference to the rebuilding of the wall have been forwarded to the Government; whether the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland in his recent visit to the West of Ireland saw the wreck, and if the inhabitants solicited his help in the matter; and whether, under all the circumstances, the poverty of the district and the nature and purpose of the work, he will grant the aid sought to rebuild the wall and repair the damage during the summer months?


I received a memorial last autumn, but I do not find that it is a matter for which the Government could make any grant.
