250 THE IRISH REPORTS. [1913. Appeal. 1911. THE COUNTY COUNCIL OF THE COUNTY OF CAVAN Nov. 17. AND THE BAILIEBOROUGH RURAL DISTRICT COUNCIL v. KANE, BROTHERS (1). Highway—Locomotive—Traction-engine—Excessive weight—Injury to highÂway—Nuisance—Special damage—Road authority—Right of, to sueÂPractice—Appeal—Orders (1905) LVIII, R. 15 ; R. 7—Enlarging time—Alistake—Bona fide intention to appeal.

MOTION on behalf of the defendants for an extension of time for appealing from the order of the King's Bench Division, dated 21st June, 1910: see [1910] 2 I. IL 644, where the hearing in that Division is reported. Notice of appeal had been served on the 21st June, 1911, but this was, as now admitted, too late. The present...
