HC Deb 16 November 1908 vol 196 cc853-4
MR. JAMES O'KELLY (Roscommon, N.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Board of Works have interfered to prevent the Carnadoe Co-operative Creamery from draining their establishment into a drain forming the boundary between their premises and the lands of Mr. John Kelly, and, if so, upon what grounds; and whether any objection has been raised to the proposed drainage by Mr. Kelly or the Board of Works tenants in the vicinity.

(Answered by Mr. Hobhouse.) I am informed that the Board of Works as Shannon Commissioners have declined to allow the outflow from this creamery to be drained into Carnadoe Water, which flows into the Shannon. The outflow from creameries has a very strong and offensive odour; and in a previous case where such outflow was allowed to run into a tributary of the Shannon it rendered the water unfit for domestic use.
