HC Deb 08 August 1901 vol 99 cc70-1

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland is he aware that the estate of Mr. William Dent Farrar, at Ballyvarra, Lisnagry, Limerick, as far back as 1885 or 1886, was offered for sale by the authorities in the land judge's court to the tenants, Mr. F. A. B. Turner being then receiver; can he say how far proceedings for sale were carried and why they were discontinued; and whether a tenant named Patrick Wheland, evicted in May, 1900, and who offered a year's rent in discharge of arrears, has since been admitted back to his holding; and will he take steps to expedite the sale of the estate.


The petition for sale of this estate was dismissed by the land judge in July of last year. The land judge has no knowledge of, or control over, any proceedings between the parties subsequent to that date, or of the alleged reinstatement of an evicted tenant.
