HC Deb 27 March 1893 vol 10 cc1162-3

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether it has been brought to his notice that three Roman Catholics in the employment of Mr. MacGeorge, of Silverbridge, County Armagh, were attacked by a number of men on Saturday night, 18th March, and that two of them were knocked down, kicked, and severely injured; and whether any persons have been made amenable?


I am informed that the occurrence did take place. The assaults were committed by two men who were drunk, and one of those assaulted was also the worse for drink. The persons assaulted are not able to give a description of their assailant, and no one has yet been arrested.
