HC Deb 11 July 1904 vol 137 cc1212-3
MR. O'DOWD (Sligo, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received from the Ballina District Council a memorial signed by the tenantry of the Granville H. Knox Estate, Crossmolina, county Mayo, which is announced to be sold by public auction in Ballina, on the 13th inst., by order of Judge Ross; and, if so, will he state the circumstances of this sale, and say whether, as this estate contains waste land suitable for the enlargement of small holdings, steps will be taken to give effect to the prayer of memorialists by having this untenanted land purchased for the purpose of enlarging the uneconomic holdings on the untenanted portions proposed to be sold.


The sale by auction has been adjourned by the Landudge to enable the Estates Commissioners to determine whether they will make an offer for the lands.
