HC Deb 06 May 1914 vol 62 cc279-80W

asked the Chief Secretary whether the Congested Districts Board received, at the end of last year, memorials from the inhabitants of the Glenties, county Donegal (being tenants on the Conyngham estate, recently acquired by the Board), asking for the construction of a bog road at Meenavale and also for the establishment of technical classes; and whether the Board is aware that, in the absence of such roads as have been asked for, many families experience difficulty in obtaining a supply of fuel; and whether they have taken, or propose to take, any steps in the matter?


In November last the Congested Districts Board received a memorial from tenants on the Conyngham estate asking them to make a new road in the townlands of Mullanmore and Ardun in the Glen of Glenties to give access to a limestone quarry and to a tract of bog, but no mention is made of Meenavale in the memorial. On consideration of the memorial the Board decided not to undertake the making of the road. An application was received on behalf of the people of the Glen of Glenties for the establishment of technical classes in the district, but no decision has yet been arrived at.
