HC Deb 13 July 1904 vol 137 cc1484-5

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the manager of the Keelnabrach School at Glenbeigh, county Kerry, reported to the National Board that the loft was in a dangerous condition, and applied for a,grant to build a new school in December, 1902; can he state why the grant was not given; and on whom the responsibility will rest in case an accident occurs, consequent on the condition of the present school building.


The manager applied for a grant for a new school-house. The Commissioners were prepared to make a grant under the old regulations, but he elected to await the issue of the expected new regulations. It is for the manager and other persons interested to adopt such precautions as may be needful for the Safety of the children in attendance at the school. No responsibility in this respect attaches to the Commissioners.
