HC Deb 16 February 1893 vol 8 c1584
MR. MACARTNEY (Antrim, S.)

I beg, to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of. Ireland whether he has received any information as to an attack by night by armed men upon the houses of two farmers near Killeentierna, Castleisland (reported in the Cork Examiner of 1st February, 1893), when repeated shots were fired into these houses; whether any cause has been assigned for the outrage; and whether any persons have been made amenable to justice?


My attention was drawn to a report of this outrage. The police are making inquiries, and under these circumstances I do riot think it would be prudent to disclose the reasons that can be assigned for the commission of the outrage. I ma add that the outrage is believed not to have arisen from agrarian causes.
