HC Deb 28 May 1903 vol 123 c114
MR. O'SHEE (Waterford, W.)

To ask the Secretary of State for War if he will say how many rifle clubs affiliated to the National Rifle Association exist in Ireland, and what is their total membership; and do the same regulations as to the authorisation and formation of rifle clubs apply to Ireland as to Great Britain.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) There are eight rifle clubs in Ireland affiliated to the National Rifle Association, and the total number of members is 366. The regulations as to authorisation and formation are the same as those in Great Britain, with the exception that the approval of the Irish Government is necessary.
