HC Deb 04 February 1904 vol 129 c353

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can give the House any information regarding the settlement of the Coolegreaney Estate in county Wexford.


Negotiations for the sale of this estate have not yet been closed; they will, it is expected, be very shortly completed. When this desirable end is reached the Estates Commissioners will be in a position to restore immediately some twenty evicted tenants to their former holdings. For others of this class land will be sought elsewhere. The landlord himself restored twenty-five evicted tenants before negotiating with the Commissioners.
