HC Deb 16 June 1890 vol 345 c1042

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the presence of the forces of the Crown have been applied for at the evictions of the remaining tenants on the Olphert estate, in the Falcarragh district; and whether he is aware that these tenants, like the tenants on the Swiney and Stewart estates, have been recipients of relief during the past 12 months of seed to crop their lands and of food for their families, and that when rendered homeless they will have no escape from starvation except the workhouse of the Dunfanaghy Union, of which the evicting landlord, Mr. Olphert, is chairman?


Protection has been applied for and granted in respect of the execution of eviction decrees in the case of certain tenants on the Olphert estate, where the Plan of Campaign is in operation. I am informed that these tenants have not been the recipients of relief for their families or of seed to crop their land in the last 12 months.
