§ MR. LONSDALE
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, whether he has received particulars of an attack with firearms upon men engaged in felling trees on Lord Gough's property, near Gort, on 9th January; and whether any of the assailants were arrested.
§ MR. BIRRELL
I have received a report of the offence referred to, which was committed on 8th January. Two men were injured by pellets of shot. The offenders were disguised and the injured persons were unable to identify any of them. No arrests have been made.
