HC Deb 29 June 1909 vol 7 cc362-3W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware of the fact that photographs of delegates representing the Gaelic Athletic Association from county Galway at the congress of that body at Thurles, county Tipperary, on 25th February, 1907, were shown by Michael Scully, district inspector, Royal Irish Constabulary, Gort, to Mr. John M'Namara, of that town, for the purpose of identifying one of the delegates who resided in Gort, namely, Mr. John Gormally; will he state the place where those photographs were taken and by whose authority; if they are at present in the possession of Mr. Scully; whether the action of this inspector in exhibiting them to others is contrary to the police regulations; and, having regard to the non-political and non-sectarian aspect of the association, what action does he purpose taking in the matter to explain the object of such proceedings?


I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to the previous question on the same subject asked by him on 24th May last, to which I have nothing to add.
