HC Deb 03 March 1903 vol 118 c1238
MR. O'DOWD (Sligo, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that a land bailiff, named McDermott, has come into possession of the Knocalassa grazing farm, situate near Riverstown, County Sligo, which until recently was held by a Mr. Dodd, of Dublin; and whether the Land Commission will advance the purchase money of this farm to McDermott, or will consider the advisability of having it used for the enlargement of the small farms surrounding it.


The estate which includes this farm is administered in the Land Judge's Court. The sale of the estate has not yet been brought before the Land Commissioners. But in any case the matter is at present solely within the discretion of the Land Judge, and the Commissioners have no duty imposed upon them such as suggested in the Question.
