HC Deb 30 April 1891 vol 352 c1771
MR. MAC NEILL (Donegal, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that in 70 of the cases heard before Land Courts held at Carrick and Killybegs, in Donegal, in January and February, 1890, appeals have been lodged against the judicial rents fixed by the Sub-Commissioners; whether he is aware that the tenants in all these cases are, with six exceptions, the recipients of public charity; and whether, having regard to the fact that these appeals are listed to be heard in the town of Donegal next June, and that the people, by reason of their extreme poverty, are unable to travel so great a distance from their homes and to support themselves while awaiting in Donegal the hearing of their cases, he will give directions for the sitting of the Appeal Court in Carrick or Killybegs, where these cases were originally heard?


The Land Commissioners Report that as soon as the arrangements are completed they will be able to say where the sittings will be held, and due regard will be had to the convenience of the persons who will have to attend them.
