HC Deb 30 June 1904 vol 137 cc165-6
MR. REDDY (King's County, Birr)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been directed to the case of Amos Palmer Doolan, who was evicted from his farm at Derry MacEdmund, near Shinrone, King's county, his yearly rent being £142; whether he is aware that the agent became tenant of the evicted holding on the 25th September, 1903, at the yearly rent of £72; and, if so, can he state when Doolan made application to the Estates Commissioners for reinstatement, and with what result; and whether, seeing that the landlord, J. H. Lloyd, has agreed to sell this estate to the occupying tenants, the Estates Commissioners, before sanctioning advances for purchase, will fully investigate the facts and take into consideration Doolan's claims.


This property has not yet come before the Estates Com- missioners. The evicted tenant named in the Question has applied for reinstatement, and his application will be duly considered.

MR. KILBRIDE (Kildare, S.)

Is it the case that the agent of the estate now occupies the farm?


I believe that is so.
