HC Deb 02 March 1896 vol 37 cc1473-4
MR. S. YOUNG (Cavan, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether he has received a memorial from the Board of Guardians of the Bailieborough Poor Law Union, county Cavan, pointing out the great necessity for making a line of railway between Bailieborough and Carrickmacross, viâ Shercock, to connect with the Great Northern Railway; and whether, considering that the district lying between Bailieborough and Carrickmacross is populous, he will recommend a grant; and, if so, on what conditions?


The case of the particular line referred to in the Question will be considered in connection with that of others, but beyond this I cannot make any further statement at the present time.
