§ MR. CHARLES CRAIG
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that three houses in the police sub-district of Kinvarra, County Galway, were fired into on the night of Sunday 12th instant, and that in one of the houses a woman, who was in delicate health, was so terrified by the shots that she now lies in a dangerous condition; 98 whether by arrests have been made in connection with these outrages; and what steps the police are taking to deal with the matter.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The police authorities have reported that on the night of 12th instant, three houses were fired into in the Kilcoglan police district, near Kinvarra. The wife of one of the occupiers has suffered considerably in health as a result of the occurrence, but is now on the road to recovery. The inmates of the houses were in bed asleep, and consequently could not identify the offenders. No arrests have yet been made, but the police are using all possible efforts to discover the guilty persons.
