§ MR. TULLY
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether a claim has been received from James M 'Goohan, of Aughoo, Ballinamore, South Leitrim, that a quantity of his hay, oats, and turf, value £50, had been maliciously damaged by Ex-Sergeant Sheridan and Ex-Constable Reed on the night of the 6th November 1899; whether he is aware that M 'Goohan's son refused to give evidence, at the instance of Ex-Sergeant Sheridan, against Dan M 'Goohan; and whether he 25 can state if any investigation has been held into James M 'Goohan's claim; and if so, where it has been held, and what was the nature of the evidence.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
I informed the lion. Member on the 14th May, that an inquiry had been made in James M 'Goohan's claim and that no evidence was forthcoming to support it. The inquiry was, for reasons which I have more than once explained to the House, of a private nature.
