HC Deb 28 February 1906 vol 152 cc1141-2

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland (1) whether it was reported to the police that on 26th December, 1905, the house of Martin Fahey at Killescragh, near Athenry, was fired into and windows smashed; (2) whether Fahey holds a small farm on the Benmore estate, which has been purchased by the Congested Districts Board; (3) and whether the cause assigned for the incident was the fact that he was suspected of paying his rent, contrary to the wishes of other tenants; (4) and what action has been taken in the matter.


The facts are as stated in the first two sections of this Question. The police have done, and are doing, everything that may be possible to discover the offenders, and protection is being afforded to Fahey.
