HC Deb 01 June 1905 vol 147 c443

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that at Gurteen Petty Sessions on 5th May, when a summons for trespass was being heard against Patrick Costelloe on account of his cattle having strayed on to another man's land from his farm, on which a great part of the walls had been maliciously thrown down, one of the magistrates told him in open Court that his proper course was to give up the farm; and, if so, whether he proposes to take any action in the matter.


As far as I have been able to ascertain, the remark mentioned, if made, did not come from any member of the bench, but from some person in Court.
