§ 57. Mr. PATRICK O'BRIEN
asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that a Kilkenny merchant named John Kealy, while being conveyed with thirty others from the gaol to the railway en route to Richmond Barracks, Dublin, under military guard, dropped dead in the street; whether this man was examined and attended to by the prison doctor; and did he certify him fit to be removed to Dublin?
§ Mr. TENNANT
This occurrence has been reported. No examination was made previous to the removal of John Kealy. He joined the other prisoners when ordered to do so en route to the station, and made no remonstrance or complaint.
§ Mr. O'BRIEN
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Mayor of Kilkenny called the attention of the Governor to the condition of this man, and asked him to see if something could not be supplied?
