HC Deb 20 April 1911 vol 24 c1021

asked the Chief Secretary whether he could state the circumstances in which two members of the Royal Irish Constabulary attended an adjourned meeting of the delegates of the Killimer, Kilmihill, and Kilmurry branches of the United Irish League, called on 9th April to select a candidate for the approaching county council election, there having been no police at the previous meeting and nothing suggestive of disorder having arisen?


I am informed by the inspector-general that, on the occasion referred to, two policemen happened to be on duty in the neighbourhood of the meeting. They had not been previously ordered to attend, and were unaware that the meeting was to be held.
