HC Deb 07 March 1887 vol 311 c1389
MR. O'KELLY (Roscommon, N.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he can state the amount of money expended in carrying out evictions last year on the property of Lord Kingston, in the Kil-ronan district of the County Roscommon; and, also the amount of rent due by the tenants evicted?

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. HOLMES)(who replied) said (Dublin University)

On four different occasions throughout the year—namely, February, April, July, and December—evictions took place on this estate. On each occasion it was necessary to afford the protection of a large force to the Sheriff. The cost of the police is estimated at about £1,000. I cannot make any statement as to the rent due.
