HC Deb 28 May 1903 vol 123 c111

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Land Commission are aware that in the case of the sale of the Allen Estate, near Carrick-on-Shannon, in the year 1881, two sub-tenants, named Peter Keogh and James Costello, to an occupier named Pat Costello, were duly declared purchasers of the respective portions of land in their possession, and that the consent of Pat Costello was duly lodged with the solicitors having carriage of sale, Messrs. E. L. Hunt and Son, 32, George's Street, Limerick; and, if so, whether the Land Commission can explain on what grounds these men have not been duly registered as owners of the farms which they bought under these circumstances.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The proceedings for sale in the estate referred to cannot be identified on the records of the Land Commission.
