HC Deb 10 May 1897 vol 49 cc99-100
MR. W. O'MALLEY (Galway, Connemara)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if his attention has been drawn to the condition of the Ard West Pier, in Carna, Connemara, which was partially destroyed by a storm in 1894, and the remaining portion of which is in such a dangerous condition that the people are afraid to moor their boats alongside it; and whether the Grand Jury, having neglected to authorise the necessary repairs, he will exercise his influence to urge upon the Board of Works the desirability of making those repairs at the curliest possible moment?


Communications have been received as to the state of this pier, and the Board of Works have instructed their engineer to make a report, as soon as possible, in reference to its condition.
