HC Deb 23 February 1905 vol 141 cc1105-6
MR. LUNDON (Limerick, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that for some time past negotiations for sale and purchase have been in progress between Mr. Stafford Delmege, of Bally-more, county Tipperary, and his tenants in the parishes of Knocklong and Glenbrohane, county Limerick; and, if so, will he say whether the Estates Commissioners have received any communications from either the landlord, the agents, Messrs. Saunders, of Charleville, or from the persons on the townlands of Glen-brohane, Ballingarry, and Garryspillane who are interested in the sale, with the view that the untenanted lands thereon may be purchased by the Estates Commissioners and divided among the labourers, small farmers, and evicted tenants.


Representations to the effect stated have been made by tenants and others in the neighbourhood. No originating application in respect to the sale of the estate has yet been lodged with the Commissioners, nor have they received any communication on the subject from the landlord or his agent.
