HC Deb 31 May 1895 vol 34 cc729-30

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the case of Peter Brady, who was prevented from selling his stock in Bailieborough Fair, on 16th May, by intimidation; by whose authority the charge against Patrick Carollan, of Virginia, for having committed an indictable offence, was withdrawn; and whether any steps have; been taken to protect Peter Brady in his legal rights?


I am aware that a man named Peter Carroll was arrested by the police on a charge of intimidation towards Brady at Bailieborough Fair, held on the 6th instant, and that at Petty Sessions the case was dismissed without prejudice by a majority of the Bench. I am making further inquiry into the matter.
