§ MR. LONSDALE (Armagh, Mid.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the police have received information of an attack made upon the house of a man named Kearney at Ballinderreen, near Gort, in the Athenry district, on the night of the 19th instant, or of the fact that six shots were fixed into the man's bedroom; and will he say whether Kearney grazes a farm from which the former tenant was evicted, and have the police any clue to the perpetrators of the outrage.
The fact is as stated in the first part of the Question. Mr. Kearney is the occupier of a small grazing farm, but it is not an evicted farm. Three men have been arrested and remanded in connection with the offence.
