HC Deb 19 July 1901 vol 97 c1003
MR. JOYCE (Limerick)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the land judges of the High Court of Justice in Ireland, as far back as eleven years ago, ordered the sale of part of the lands of Ballygrennane, the owner then being John Christopher Delmege, and the tenant being John Casey, the said townland of Ballygrennane being in the barony of Publebrien and county of Limerick; is he aware that later on the sum of £720 was fixed on as the price, the tenant consenting, and can he state whether this sale was later on brought under the 40th section of the Act of 1896, or what has caused the delay in bringing the sale to an issue, and will he take steps to bring about such sale.


The sale of this estate is not taking place under the 40th section of the Act of 1896. I am informed that Mr. Casey, in May last, offered to purchase the fee simple of his holding for the price mentioned, and that an agreement for sale to him at that price is now in course of preparation.
