HC Deb 10 April 1905 vol 144 c993
MR. KILBRIDE (Kildare, S.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have received an application for reinstatement to Curragh Farm, Kildare, from Miss Elizabeth Colgan; if so, what action has been taken in the matter; have the Estates Commissioners acquired any untenanted land in Kildare; if so, how much; and whether, in the event of it being found impossible to restore Miss Colgan to Curragh Farm, she will be provided with an equivalent holding.

(Answered, by Mr. Walter Long.) Yes, Sir; but the evicted holding was purchased by a new tenant eighteen years ago. The Commissioners have not acquired any untenanted land in Kildare, but if they should do so they will consider the application.
