§ MR. MACARTNEY (Antrim, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to a resolution passed at a meeting of the Shanagolden Branch of the Irish National Federation, reported in The Limerick Leader of the 30th of May, denouncing the Shanagolden shopkeepers who supply the people living on Mr. O'Brien's farm, and calling upon all true Nationalists to assist in crushing out such a cringing spirit; and whether it is proposed to take any action in regard to this branch?
MR. J. MORLEY
The resolution was published in the newspaper referred to, but the police inform me that the meeting at which it is alleged to have been adopted was not in point of fact held at all, nor has any result followed from the resolution. It is not proposed, therefore, to take any action in the matter.
