HC Deb 24 November 1884 vol 294 cc235-6

asked Mr. Solicitor General for Ireland, If he is aware that James Loughlin and other tenants in the townland of Cortron, Ballintogher, county Sligo, who entered into agreements out of Court with their landlord, fixing a fair rent, and who, at the time of entering into such agreements, were promised by the agent of the property, in the presence of witnesses, that a right of way from their holdings to the high road would be provided for them, are still, to their great injury and loss, left unprovided with such right of way; and, whether the Land Commission Court will cause to be fulfilled the condition upon which the agreements, confirmed by the Court, were made between the landlords and the tenants, or in what other manner can the tenants obtain redressed?


I am informed that nothing appears in the agreements of James Loughlin and the other tenants referred to in the Question, as filed in the Land Court, to show that a condition as to the giving of a right of way was made. It is obvious, therefore, that the Land Court has no jurisdiction.
