§ MR. O'NEILL (Antrim, Mid)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that, on the night succeeding the passing of the Second Reading of the Home Rule Bill, a Nationalist band paraded the streets of Clogheen, County Tipperary, and stopped and played opposite the residence of Dr. Richard Walsh, a medical gentleman, who had not illuminated his windows, and that stones were thrown through the windows of that gentleman's house; and will he state what steps have been, or are being, taken by Her Majesty's Government to protect loyal citizens in that neighbourhood?
*MR. J. MORLEY
This account is a very highly-coloured narrative of what actually took place. I learn that one stone was thrown at Dr. Walsh's house, and broke one single pane of glass. No one has been made amenable, but the 51 police are giving the matter their attention. I am informed that Dr. Walsh is himself a Nationalist.
