HC Deb 25 February 1904 vol 130 c1000

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that last November the Congested Districts Board made an offer for the Taafe Estate, near Ballyhaunis, in the county of Mayo, which offer has not yet been brought definitely before the Land Judge's Court in which that estate now is; and that the tenants have repeatedly offered to purchase it during the last thirty years and take it out of that Court; and, if so, whether he will take immediate steps to have this sale completed.


Negotiations for the sale of this estate are pending between the solicitors having carriage of the proceedings and the Congested Districts Board. When these have been satisfactorily settled an offer will be made by the Board in the Land Judge's Court.
