§ MR. JOHN DILLON (Mayo, S.)
I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether his attention has been called to the fact that a syndicate has been formed to enclose a path leading to the Giant's Causeway, over which the public have hitherto enjoyed an un-disputable right of way; and whether the law in Ireland applicable to the protection of public rights of way is the same as that applicable to such cases in England?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. J. ATKINSON,) Londonderry, N.
Yes, Sir. I know of no difference in the law.
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND
I am aware that there are no district councils in Ireland, and therefore no authority to exercise this power.
§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL (Donegal, S.)
Will the hon. Gentleman say whether the people can exercise the power of destroying those barriers?
