§ MR. DOOGAN (Tyrone, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Very Rev. Canon Rice, P.P., the Lady Superioress of the Convent of Mercy, and two companion nuns, were attacked on Sunday evening the 6th instant, near the village of Tullyhogue, and the carriage in which they were travelling stoned; and will he say what steps have been or will be taken against the persons making this attack.
MR. ATKINSON—(for Mr. WYNDHAM)
One stone, I am informed, was thrown at the carriage. The act was committed, it is believed, by a drunken person whose name the police have and whom they hope to make amenable.
