HC Deb 29 July 1910 vol 19 c2668W

asked the Secretary of State for War if a rifle range is to be established at Ballycannan, county Clare; and is he aware that the land in question is required for agriculture by the local people of the district?


It is intended to establish the range in question. It is understood that the land is mostly rough heather, and only a small part is arable and suitable for agricultural purposes. The land is the only available property which would meet the requirements of a range, which is necessary in the interests of military efficiency. Representations in favour of the range have been received from many of the inhabitants of the neighbourhood.
