HC Deb 21 February 1902 vol 103 cc717-8

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether he is aware that the resident magistrate, presiding at the Sneem Petty Sessions in November, 1901, refused to grant a gun licence to Thomas Sheehan, of Tahilla, who is a harbour constable and relieving officer; and can he state on what grounds the refusal was based.


The question of the issue of a licence to keep firearms is one for the consideration of the resident magistrate, as licensing officer of the district. This case has been referred to the resident magistrate for such further consideration and action as he may think fit.
