HC Deb 12 July 1905 vol 149 cc396-7

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland is he aware that arrangements as to sale and purchase have been made on the Croker Estate, in the parish of Herbertstown and adjoining parishes, in the county of Limerick, as between the landlord, Mr. Courtney Croker, and the tenants, and can he say how far these arrangements have been carried; can he say whether the Estates Commissioners have before them an application from Mr. Michael Power for reinstatement to his farm in Moohane, from which his father, the late Richard Power, was evicted over fifteen years ago; is he aware that the † See (4) Debates, cxlvi., 1399. ‡ See (4) Debates, cxlvii., 715. man who took up that farm is prepared to leave it in favour of Power if he gets fair compensation; and, if so, will he recommend Power's case as one for immediate settlement.


No proceedings for the sale of this estate have yet been instituted before the Commissioners. The application which has been lodged by Michael Power will be considered if the estate should come before the Commissioners.
