HC Deb 30 July 1900 vol 87 c23
MR. JAMES O'CONNOR (Wicklow, W.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he can state the number of Roman Catholic officers and soldiers stationed at the Kilbride rifle range, county Wicklow; and how far the nearest Roman Catholic church is from the range; and whether any arrangement has been made to provide the Roman Catholic soldiers stationed at the Kilbride range with the services of a chaplain.


There are only five Roman Catholics among the troops now stationed at Kilbride rifle range. No special arrangements to provide a chaplain for them have been made. There is a Roman Catholic church three miles from the range.
