HC Deb 30 June 1904 vol 137 c166
MR. SHEEHAN (Cork County, Mid)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will state the number of police at present stationed at Ballingeary; and, seeing that there were only eleven cases from the village tried at petty sessions during the past year, will he explain what necessity now exists for the continuance of this police barrack; and whether the peace of the district could not be efficiently protected from the other barrack in the parish.


A sergeant and four constables. The question of the necessity for the continuance of the barrack is one for determination by the authorities locally responsible for the maintenance of the public peace. These authorities do not consider the barrack can be dispensed with at present.
