HC Deb 10 April 1905 vol 144 cc1027-8
MR. KENDAL O'BRIEN (Tipperary, Mid.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland is he aware that in connection with the sale of the Lamphier Estate, at Forlacummin Slievar-dagh, county Tipperary, the evicted tenants, Messrs. Feehan and M'Cormac, in making application for their reinstatement acted in good faith, as they had never assigned their interests in their farms to any person, and that the fact of giving the supposed expenses of the sheriff in the contemplated eviction has been utilised by the owner as a reason for giving over the tenancies to another man for the sum of £230; and will he see that the Estates Commissioners take steps to reinstate these evicted tenants.


I beg to refer the hon. Member to my reply of 23rd March†. These persons are not evicted † See (4) Debates, cxliii., 969. tenants, and have no claim to reinstatement.
