HC Deb 01 August 1905 vol 150 c1167

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the representative of the late James Byrne, of Tully, Queen's County, who was evicted on April 22nd, 1887, from Lord Lansdowne's estate at Luggacurran, has sent in a claim for reinstatement to the Estates Commissioners; and, in view of the fact that the estate is at present in the hands of the Commissioners for sale to the tenants, can he state what provision is being made for the representative of the late Mr. Byrne, who was evicted on the above date out of a holding of 189 acres.


The evicted holding is occupied by another tenant, and is not part of the estate for sale. The untenanted land comprised in the estate now being sold is insufficient for the wants of evicted tenants in the immediate neigbourhood, and the Commissioners do not propose to allot any part of it to the representative of the evicted tenant referred to in the Question.
