HC Deb 21 April 1898 vol 56 cc641-2
MR. D. MACALEESE (Monaghan, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that an estate or property near Clogher, in county Tyrone, belonging to Mr. Upton P. Brackinridge, is about to be sold through the Land Commission to the tenants; is he aware that the agent of Mr. Brackinridge, in 1890, evicted a tenant named Edward Hynes for two years' rent of a farm in the townland of Ballyscally, on the property new about to be sold, although Hynes offered one year's rent; and that the farm was given to a Person named Todd, who took up Hynes's improvements without giving any compensation; and will the Land Commission consider favourably Hynes's application for reinstatement?


No agreement between Mr. Brackinridge and his tenants, for the sale to them of their holdings under the Land Purchase Acts, have as yet been lodged in the Land Commission, and no application was received from Edward Hynes under the 47th Section of the Land Act of 1896.
