HC Deb 29 June 1893 vol 14 cc338-9
MR. MAGUIRE (Clare, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that sewers have been, and are being, made leading from the town of Carndonagh to the river flowing through that town; and whether, in view of the fact that this river forms the principal water supply of the town, he will consider the necessity of taking steps in the matter?


Frequent complaints have been made to the Local Government Board as to the impurity of the Carndonagh water supply, and the Board have impressed upon the Board of Guardians the necessity of having the quality of the water tested, and of providing, if required, a proper supply. The Guardians do not appear, however, to have taken any effective action in the matter, and the Local Government Board have addressed a further communication to the Guardians on the subject.
