HC Deb 14 April 1921 vol 140 c1316W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that a bomb was thrown last week from a polic lorry at the residence of the Rev. T. Dunne, P.P., Kilnadeema; that on the same day a bomb was thrown into the sitting-room of the Rev. Dr. Dignan, P.P., Duniry; that on the same day the house, effects, and out-offices of a farmer, named Downey, at Abbey, Loughrea, were destroyed by fire; and what explanation is forthcoming?


My right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary has instituted an official inquiry into these matters, and if any members of the police forces be found to have been guilty of the outrages alleged, the hon. Member may rest assured that appropriate action will be taken.
