HC Deb 29 June 1904 vol 137 cc21-2

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is prepared to advise the Estates Commissioners to purchase for striping amongst tenants of Currool-Fox, Currool Kenny, and Currool Brennan the farm of Dernageas, in the barony of Rathclive, county Longford, on the estate of Mrs. Harriett Ledwith, whose agent is Mr. Webb, Corngard, Boyle, county Roscommon; whether he is aware that the landlady is willing and anxious to sell this farm for the benefit of the tenants; and whether, as Newtowncashel parish, in which this farm is situate, may be described as a congested district, he will advise the Estates Commissioners to expend money on the reclamation, fencing, and division of this farm.


The Estates Commissioners have not received any application from the owner of this estate. Should it be offered to the Commissioners-they will consider the question of its improvement and division.
