HC Deb 26 July 1889 vol 338 c1420
MR. BYRNE (Wicklow, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that although the tenants on Mr. Graves Cathrew's estate at Donard, and others in West Wicklow, have made applications to the Land Court to have fair rents fixed nearly two years ago, the landlord is more stringent than ever in collecting the rents at the old rates, and that the tenants are unable to hold out any longer; and, whether he will urge the Land Commission to hold sitting on an early day?


The land Commissioners report that 11 applications from the estate of Mr. Cathrew remain still undisposed of. They will in ordinary course be included in the next list for Baltinglass Union. It appears that such of these tenants as are in poor circumstances are receiving an abatement pending the fixing of the judicial rents.
