HC Deb 26 March 1908 vol 186 c1587

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that an extensive cattle-drive took place on the 17th instant, when over 100 head of cattle and sheep were removed off the lands of Lackan, Fulmorth, and Soho, Multyfarnham, county Westmeath; whether the police have assigned any reason for the outrage; how many persons have been arrested in connection with it; and what sentences were passed.


The facts are substantially as stated. I cannot state the surmises of the police as to the reason for driving off the cattle, No arrests have been made in the case.
