§ MR. KILBRIDE (Kerry, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the case of James Donnelly, Rocktown, who was evicted by the Magherafelt Board of Guardians on the 20th inst., has been brought under his notice; whether the Local Government Board have communicated with the Guardians rebuking them; and whether the Guardians had a legal right to evict this man, and what action the Local Government Board intend to take in the matter?
§ MR. JACKSON
The Clerk of the Magherafelt Board of Guardians reports that an order was made against Donnelly directing him to pay £6 odd and costs within six months, and, as he failed to comply with the order, his farm was sold. The Local Government Board did not consider that they were called upon to interfere in the matter.
