HC Deb 14 May 1902 vol 108 c196

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state what compensation has been awarded to Pat Quinn, of Ballinamore, County Leitrim, whose cattle were houghed by ex-Sergeant Sheridan; and whether it is proposed to make awards to James M'Goohan and the other claimants who suffered from the action of ex-Sergeant Sheridan while a member of the police force in the County Leitrim.


A sum of £12 has been paid to Quinn. The claim of M'Goohan was carefully investigated, but no evidence whatever was forth-coining to show that the loss sustained by him was in any way traceable to the action of Sheridan. His claim was not, therefore, admitted.
