§ Mr. NEWMAN
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he is aware that shots were fired into the house of a national school teacher, near Abbeyfeale, county Limerick, and an attempt made to burn the schoolhouse; and what steps are being taken to protect the schoolmaster and to bring the perpetrators of this outrage to justice?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The facts are as stated. The house fired into was not a schoolteacher's residence, but the house in which he lodged. The police are giving all necessary protection and doing all that is possible to bring the guilty persons to justice.
