HC Deb 05 June 1893 vol 13 c194

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if his attention has been called to a meeting of the Irish National Federation, Rosscarbery Branch, which was held in the National School Room on Thursday, 11th May, at which a charge of land-grabbing was brought against Michael Sweeny; and whether the National Board allow such meetings to be held in their schools?


I understand that meetings of the nature indicated took place in the National School at Rosscarbery on May 14 and two subsequent dates. The attention of the National Eduation Board has been drawn to the matter. Sweeny is reported to have attended the meetings voluntarily, and the police are closely watching the case.
