HC Deb 20 June 1907 vol 176 c626
MR. LONSDALE (Armagh, Mid.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that a grazing farm on the property of Lord Rosse at Derrinlough, near Birr, occupied by MR. Parsons, of Shinrone, has been cleared of all its stock by a crowd of persons; and whether any persons are being prosecuted in connection with this occurrence.


On 17th instant MR. John Parkinson's cattle were driven off his farm at the place mentioned. The police came promptly to the scene, and restored the cattle to the farm. The evidence which is available against several persons is being investigated with a view to considering the question of a prosecution.
