Ceistenna-Questions. Oral Answers. - Alleged Incidents at Ennistymon.

asked the Minister for Justice if he will state what charge or charges were eventually brought against ten men who were on or about 1st December, 1933, charged and remanded at a special court at Ennistymon with riotous assembly in Ennistymon on 29th October, 1933; what was the result of the further proceedings; and if conviction and sentence followed to state if the sentences (if any) were carried out.

My information is that no such incidents as those referred to by the Deputy occurred on the dates mentioned.

That is in answer to question No. 16?

Yes, and I wish the Deputy would read the newspapers on that particular matter.

People were sentenced for it.

That is untrue and incorrect. On the dates given by the Deputy, no such incidents occurred.

The Minister may be quibbling about dates, but they were sentenced.
