I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that three 249 cattle-drives recently took place at Claregalway, about six miles from Galway; and how many arrests have been made.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The police are aware of but one cattle-drive at Claregalway or its vicinity. This occurred on 16th April, when a drunken man drove some sheep off a farm. He was arrested by the police, and when he became sober he said he would not drive the cattle again. He has since been prosecuted and fined for drunkenness.
