§ DR. TANNER
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether any steps will be taken to carry out the work necessary for the preservation of Kilcrea Abbey, county Cork; and, why the Report on the state of this national and ancient monument is given under head 4 as being a ruin vested and repaired in Appendix H to the Sixty-fourth Report of the Commissioners of Public Works, Ireland, it being stated under sub-head 10 that further works must be held over for the present?
§ MR. HANBURY
Periodical inspections are made of structures of this character which are vested in the Board of Works, and the last Report represents the ruins as being in a fair state of preservation. If, on the occasion of the next inspection, works of preservation are found necessary, they will be executed. The Report is given under head 4 (ruins vested and repaired) because subsequently to the date of vesting works were carried out at the structure.
