HC Deb 26 July 1898 vol 62 c1324

On behalf of the honourable Member for the St. Patrick Division of Dublin I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Government have considered the advisability of connecting Castletown, Berehaven, with Kenmare by laying down a railway; whether any survey has been made; and what action he proposes to take in the matter?


I am unable, without inquiry, to say whether the question of railway connection between the points mentioned has been brought before the Government; but in any case no survey has been made, and as there are no funds available for further railway construction, it is not proposed by Government to take any action in the matter.
