§ MR. HADDOCK (Lancashire, North Lonsdale)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the assault with firearms upon the house of Mr. Donohue, at Killafin, in the Gort district, upon Saturday night, the 22nd instant; whether any motive is attributed by the owner for the outrage; and whether any arrests have been made.
I beg also to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that on Sunday night, 23rd June, the residence of Mr. Blake, at Hollypark, in the Athenry district, was fired into; whether any arrests have been made; and whether Mr. Blake can assign any motive for this outrage.
I beg further to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether official information has reached him of an assault with firearms upon a police station at Knockadorive, county Kerry; whether any arrests have yet been made for this and for the moonlighting outrages committed in this district a few months ago; and what motives are alleged to have been the cause of all these disturbances.
§ MR. BIRRELL
I beg to refer to my Answers to three similar Questions which were put yesterday by the hon. Member for Mid. Armagh † No arrests have been made. I have no information as to the motives of the offenders.
