HC Deb 01 March 1897 vol 46 c1345

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in reference to the Cahir estate disturbances and the strong local feeling against the conduct of Mr. P. O 'Dwyer, the Government would consider the advisability of bringing some pressure to bear on Mr. O 'Dwyer, who is an excise officer, in order to terminate the dispute and save extra expense to the county?


I am aware that outrages have been committed in this district, and that strong local feeling exists against Mr. O'Dwyer, but Mr. O'Dwyer is acting within his legal rights, and the Government cannot intervene, as suggested in the Question.

Forward to
