HC Deb 16 July 1903 vol 125 c868
MR. ROCHE (Galway, E)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Lord Clanricarde has recently served notices to quit on tenants at Derrygoolin, Woodford; if so, will he state the amount of rent due on date of service; also, if rent had been demanded; and, if not, why were tenants served.


Yes, Sir. Three notices to quit were served. A half-year's rent (something over £3) was due in each case. Payment had not been demanded before service. No cause was assigned for the issue of the notices. Upon application being made by the landlord for ejectment decrees, founded upon the notices to quit, it will be open to the tenants to apply for a stay of proceedings.
