HC Deb 13 June 1892 vol 5 c899

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the cow of a labourer named Michael Traynor, of Creerylake, near Carrickmacross, County Monaghan, was seized on the 4th instant by a bailiff named Henry Stubs when trespassing on an evicted farm on the Shirely Estate and impounded, and that Stubs detained the animal for three days, and charged the owner £3 before releasing it; and what was the charge of £3 for, and was it a legal charge?


I have no official cognizance of the subject matter of this question, but I understand the seizure referred to was made by a sheriff's bailiff in respect of a sum of £3 due for county cess, and that on the payment of this sum by Traynor the animal was released.
