HC Deb 16 March 1903 vol 119 cc855-6
MR. KENDAL O'BRIEN (Tipperary, Mid)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been directed to an encounter between a number of the Royal Irish Constabulary and some civilians near the village of Killea, in the county of Tipperary, on Sunday last; and whether, in view of the fact that, the police demand that the bands returning from a meeting in Templemore should not play when passing Thompson's dwelling at Barnane was agreed to, he will explain why District Inspector White ordered the police to use batons on the people, whereby several persons were injured.


Yes, Sir, my attention has been called to the rioting that took place on this occasion. A special inquiry is being made into the circumstances.


Will the hon. Gentleman inform the House of the result of the inquiries?


Yes, when I have received it.

Forward to
