HC Deb 07 May 1896 vol 40 c748
MR. JASPER TULLY (Leitrim, S.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, whether as the military barracks in Ballyshannon, and other places in Ireland from which troops had been withdrawn, are now occupied by military detachments, it is the intention of the military authorities in Ireland to have the military barracks in Boyle occupied by an infantry detachment in accordance with the practice carried out by previous Governments of stationing troops in Boyle?


It is not intended to re-occupy the barracks at Boyle with regular troops. The troops at present quartered at Ballyshannon are there for a temporary purpose only.
