HC Deb 22 July 1907 vol 178 c1184
MR. P. A. MCHUGH (Sligo, N.)

I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture (Ireland), whether he has observed the statement made by the Rev. Mr. Green, Inspector of Fisheries (Ireland), before the Committee on the Collooney, Ballina, and Belmullet Railways and Piers Bill, to the effect that from Killybegs, in county Donegal, to Fenit, in county Kerry, there was no harbour in which fishing boats could land at all states of the tide; and can he say what steps the Department propose taking with a view to the proper development of the fishing industry on the North-West and West Coasts of Ireland.


Mr. Green stated before the House of Commons Committee on the Collooney and Bellmulet Railway Bill that there was no harbour between Killybegs, in Donegal, and Fenit in Kerry, at which large fishing boats can, irrespective of tide, deliver their fish direct on to the railway. The Department would be very pleased to see further railway facilities provided.
