HC Deb 12 March 1895 vol 31 c883

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland how many divisions, or parts of divisions, of Loughrea Union are scheduled as within the congested area; what applications have been made for help for these districts, and what grants were made or works assisted there; and what works, if any, are being helped, or to be started in this year of extreme want, in those congested districts?


Three of the divisions of this union are scheduled as within the jurisdiction of the Congested Districts Board, and three applications for the making and repairing of roads in these divisions have been made to the Board. The Board has signified its willingness to contribute £500 on certain conditions towards the cost of constructing a road in the Woodford division. In the other cases the Board decided that, having regard to the funds at its disposal, it could not take the projects into consideration unless the county is willing to contribute a substantial portion of the necessary outlay.
