§ 4. Mr. BOLAND
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he can state what progress has been made with the construction of the pier at Ballinskelligs; and when it is expected that the work will be completed?
§ The CHIEF SECRETARY for IRELAND (Mr. Birrell)
The greater part of the rock excavation for the pier has been done, and a good deal of the necessary filling-in to join the quay to the mainland has been accomplished. No definite date can be given for the completion of the work, as the rate of progress depends on the state of the weather, but it is not expected that the work will be completed before 31st March next.
