HC Deb 27 July 1914 vol 65 c931
82. Mr. DORIS

asked whether the local constabulary have received official directions to keep constant watch by night and day over the river at Louisburgh for the detection of poachers; and whether it is the duty of the constabulary to act as water bailiffs for the Marquess of Sligo, the owner of the fishery?


The answer to both paragraphs of the question is in the negative. It is, however, the duty of the police to enforce the fishery laws when any breach of those laws come under their notice.
