O'Connor, of Killarney, is a justice of the peace for the county of Kerry; and, if so, if he will state the exact date of his appointment; who recommended him to the Lord Chancellor; and on what date he took the oaths prescribed by the Promissory Oaths Act of 1868; and if Mr. O'Connor's name was removed from the register of voters for seven years?
