HC Deb 16 June 1904 vol 136 cc278-9
* MR. BOLAND (Kerry, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that inconvenience is caused to tenants in the Kenmare Rural District who serve notice to have fair rents fixed before the County Court Judge, by reason of the fact that these cases are heard at Killarney instead of Kenmare; and whether, seeing that. quarter sessions are held in Kenmare in January and June, that many of these tenants in Sneem and Tuosist parishes reside 20 miles from Kenmare, and that there is no railway communication between these districts and Kenmare, he can arrange that these cases should be heard at the Kenmare quarter sessions.


The word Kenmare in the 13th and 15th lines is a misprint, I presume, for Killarney. I have communicated the Question to the learned Judge, who expresses his willingness to hear such cases at Kenmare if so desired. Cases from that district have been adjourned for hearing at Kenmare whenever application, on the ground of convenience, was made to him.


May I state, Mr. Speaker, that the facts are correctly set out in my Question. Railway communication exists between Kenmare and Killarney, but not between Sneem or Tuosist and Kenmare.
