HC Deb 30 November 1893 vol 19 cc105-6
MR. W. JOHNSTON (Belfast, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he can give the result of the inquiry into the case reported in the Dublin Daily Express of the 21st November, where it was alleged that a Protestant pauper woman, aged 104 years, was, when lying at the point of death, received into the Roman Catholic Church by the Rev. Dr. Langan, Administrator of St. Mary's, Athlone, on Sunday, the 5th of November?


Is it not a fact that the rev. gentleman was sent for by the woman, and attended at her request?


Inquiry is being made, and pending the result of it my right hon. Friend regrets that he is not in a position to announce what further action, if any, will be taken.
