§ Mr. W. J. MacGEAGH MacCAW (on behalf of Mr. Lonsdale)
asked the Chief Secretary whether the house of John Williams, of Doolin, county Clare, was fired into on the night of Sunday, 11th July; that John Williams is rent-warner and steward to Mr. H. V. Macnamara, on whose estate at Doolin there have been extensive cattle-drives; and that an United Irish League organiser held a meeting at Doolin and another at Lisdoon-varna on Sunday, 4th July; and what steps are being taken to protect Mr. H. V. Macnamara's employés from intimidation and outrage?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The statements in the first part of the question are correct. All the men in Mr. Macnamara's employment are afforded protection, a number of police being employed exclusively on this duty.
