MR. T. M. HEALY
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney General for Ireland whether he 1193 is aware that Thomas Brady, Ballinaglera, County Leitrim, was convicted on 5th July, 1898, for firing at the person and placed under a rule of bail, was again convicted on 12th July, 1899, for threatening and placed again under a rule of bail, and on 26th December, 1899, was a third time convicted for assaulting the police; did the Government on any occasion estreat his recognisances; and do they still license the convict to carry firearms.
§ *THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. ATKINSON,) Londonderry, N.
On the 21st February and 15th June, 1899,* my right hon. friend the Chief Secretary replied very fully to questions addressed to him by the hon. Gentleman in reference to the case of this man, Thomas Brady, and his conviction in July, 1898. In July, 1899, he was ordered to find bail to be of good behaviour for using threatening language, and in December he was fined for drunkenness and for assaulting a constable. The answer to the second and third paragraphs is in the negative. Brady's licence to carry firearms was revoked in January, 1891.
