§ 36. Mr. LYNCH
asked the Chief Secretary whether, in view of the fact that if proper facilities and safeguards were given to the fishermen of Quilty and Seafield, West Clare, an increase in the supply of fish available for food could be guaranteed, he will cause works to be undertaken, as, for instance, at Seafield pier, which will help to give these fishermen the needful protection?
§ Mr. DUKE
A pier was constructed at considerable expense at Seafield some years ago for the accommodation of the boats of the Quilty and Seafield fishermen. Representations have been made that a passage should be cut in the rock outside the pier in order to improve the approach from the sea, but I am advised that the proposed work would involve very heavy expenditure, and would probably not be effective.
