HC Deb 17 May 1898 vol 57 cc1552-3
MR. SHEEHY (Galway, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the fact that the harbour accommodation at Kilrossan, Arran Island, is entirely inadequate for the number of boats at present engaged there in the fishing industry, and that the development of the industry is also greatly retarded, he will urge on the Board of Works to take immediate steps to carry out the necessary extension of the Kilmore Pier?


The Question of extending the pier at Kilrossan in the North Island of Arran is engaging the attention of the Government, but I am unable to make any further statement in the matter at present.
