§ MR. FLAVIN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that great inconvenience is caused to fishermen and considerable injury done to fishing boats at Rinneen and Lohar, near Waterville, County Kerry, owing to the want of proper facilities for landing boats and fish; and whether representations will be made to the Congested Districts Board with a view to have inquiries made as to the great necessity that exists for the building of a small boat slip or pier at Rinneen for the convenience of the fishermen of the surrounding districts.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. G. W. BALFOUR,) Leeds, Central
The coast is very exposed in this locality, and I have no reason to doubt the accuracy of the statements in the first paragraph. The improvement of the landing place at Rinneen has been several times considered by the Congested Districts Board, but it appears that any permanently effective work would be very costly and could not be carried out without an expenditure of some thousands of pounds.
