HC Deb 30 July 1894 vol 27 cc1257-8
MR. MACARTNEY (Antrim, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the attention of the Constabulary has been called to a placard, signed "Vengeance," threatening Colonel John O'Callaghan, and warning the men of Clare to beware of Colonel Jack and his son, and advising them to boycott their hay; whether he is aware that these placards have been posted near Colonel O'Callaghan's residence; and what steps have been taken to protect Colonel O'Callaghan's property from injury?


Copies of the placard referred to have been found by, the police posted in various parts of the district and also close to the residence of Colonel O'Callaghan. He has 12 men from the locality cutting his meadows at present, and two of these commenced work since the posting of the notices. Ample protection is afforded to him and his property.
