HC Deb 04 April 1905 vol 144 c318
MR. MURPHY (Kerry, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland when the Congested Districts Board purchased the two evicted farms at Cragg and Ardcrone, county Kerry; what amounts they paid for these farms; what use the lands have been put to by the Board since the date of purchase; and what action the Board intends to take in connection with these farms in the future.


In November, 1903, the Board bought the tenant purchasers' interests in these farms for £300, and in March, 1905, they paid off the Land Commission annuity by a payment of £2,793 10s. The Board have used the lands for grazing cattle, and they intend to dispose of them to landholders to be migrated from the congested districts of the county.
