HC Deb 07 March 1902 vol 104 c723
MR. CONDON (Tipperary, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that a policeman named Henihan called upon Mr. Michael Dolan, Mr. Nairn, and Mrs. Ryan, merchants and traders in Cashel, and ordered them to remove goods which they had exhibited outside their business houses; and seeing that the Cashel Urban Council is the only authority having power to interfere in such cases, will he state by whose orders Henihan acted; and will he issue such instructions as will prevent in the future a repetition of such conduct on the part of the police.


The constable pointed out to the traders named that they were committing an offence under the Towns Improvement Act by keeping their goods on the footpath in such a manner as to cause an obstruction He did not order the traders to remove the goods. The provisions of the Act are not enforced by the police in Cashel, but by the Urban District Council.
