§ COLONEL NOLAN (Galway, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if the Board of Works in Ireland have furnished any 1169 plans showing how the people on the east bank of Lough Corrib could avail themselves of the Galway and Oughterard Railway; and, if not, would he ask the Board of Works to prepare a Report showing what advantages would be obtained by the baronies of Clare and Moycullen from the establishment of a bridge at Knock Ferry across Lough Corrib, and what would be the probable cost of such a bridge?
§ SIR J. T. HIBBERT
No, Sir; the Board of Works have made no plans for the purpose indicated. Further, as there are no public funds applicable to such a work, I am afraid I could not call upon the Board to prepare such a design.
