I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether any persons have been made amenable for the offence of shooting and wounding Thomas Corcoran, junior, of Benmore, near Loughrea, on the night of 21st July, and, if not, what is the reason for the failure to bring the perpetrators of this outrage to justice.

Three persons were arrested for this offence. The case was heard by the resident magistrate at Loughrea, on the 9th instant, when the accused were discharged owing to the insufficiency of the evidence.
