asked the Chief Secretary whether Constable Kistin, of the Royal Irish Constabulary, was fired at and wounded in Tipperary on 19th October; and what steps, if any, the Government have taken in the matter?

The facts are, I regret to say, as stated, except that the constable's name is Kirton. He was fired at while in a public-house late in the evening and wounded in the head and arm. The police have as yet been unable to obtain any information as to the identity of his assailant. I am glad to state that Constable Kirton is out of danger, his wounds are healing, and that he has been discharged from hospital.
