HC Deb 30 March 1903 vol 120 cc574-5
MR. CLANCY (Dublin Co., N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the? Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the sub-sheriff for the county of Donegal keeps no office in that county for the transaction of his official business, and that his office is in the city of Londonderry; and will he say what steps the Government intends to take in the matter.


Under Section 63 of 27 and 28 Vict. cap. 99, the under sheriff is required to have an office in the county town, or, with the approval of the chairman of the quarter sessions, in one of the quarter sessions towns, of the county. The under sheriff of Donegal, with the consent of the chairman, has his office in the quarter sessions town of Letterkenny.
