HC Deb 28 June 1904 vol 136 c1414
MR. O'DOHERTY (Donegal, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received a memorial from those interested in the development of the fisheries and granite quarries in and around Port-na-Ling praying for the construction of a pier at that port; and whether, seeing that a report has been made by the Donegal county surveyor, on the feasibility of such a project, to the county council, and, in view of the utility and advantage the construction of a pier would be to the inhabitants of the peninsula of Fonnett, he will send one of the Government engineers to report thereon with a view to the wish being carried out.


There are no funds available for undertaking this proposed work, and unless and until additional funds are placed at the disposal of Government, I am afraid no useful object would be served by causing an inspection of the site to be carried out.
