HC Deb 02 February 1893 vol 8 c231

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Judge who presided at the trial of William Coll, Patrick Roarty, Dominic Rodgers, and Connell Magee was consulted before their release?


In January, 1890, a Memorial was addressed to Lord Zetland, the then Lord Lieutenant for Ireland, praying for the release of Coll, and the Judge, in his Report to the Lord Lieutenant, stated his views as to the proceedings at the trial and the result. The Irish Government did not think it necessary to trouble the learned Judge in the same matter on the present occasion.
