HC Deb 10 April 1905 vol 144 c1006
MR. O'DOWD (Sligo, S.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state whether the purchase by the tenants of the O'Conor Estate, situate in Floughena, near Charlestown, county Mayo, has yet received the sanction of the Estates Commissioners; whether, if so, the terms of agreement contain provisions for the reinstatement of the family of the late Thomas Durkan, an evicted tenant; and, if not, will the Commissioners be instructed to make inquiries into this case, with a view of having this orphan family reinstated.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) No proceedings for the sale of this estate have yet been instituted before the Commissioners. An application for reinstatement has been received from Mary Durkan, as representative of Thomas Durkan, and this will be considered in due course.
