HC Deb 24 October 1899 vol 77 c583
MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that a police barrack or protection post has been placed at the village of Firies, county Kerry; whether, seeing that there are already in the immediate neighbourhood of Firies two permanent police barracks, one at Furranfore and another at Ballybrack, and in view of the peaceable condition of the district, he will explain why the new barracks at Firies is necessary; and what cost, if any, will have to be borne by the people for the Firies barrack and constabulary stationed therein.


A police station was established at Firies upwards of fifteen months ago concurrently with the abolition of the station at Longfield in the immediate vicinity. There is no station at Ballybrack. No portion of the cost will have to be borne by the locality for either barrack or constabulary at Firies.
