§ MR. SHEEHAN (Cork County, Mid)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will explain why the police have taken no steps to arrest the man Sheehan, an escaped lunatic from the Dundrum 1188 Criminal Asylum, seeing that the Rathduff police were on Sunday, 19th April, informed of this man's whereabouts.
(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The police at Rathduff have had no opportunity to detain Sheehan. They were informed that he was in the locality; inquiry, however, satisfied the police, as well as the informant, that the latter was quite mistaken.
