HC Deb 22 March 1905 vol 143 c800
MR. O'KELLY (Mayo. N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the O'Donnell property in Erris, county Mayo, has been purchased by the Congested Districts Board; and, if so, how many years purchase have been paid for it; and, if the property has not yet been purchased, will the Board, in any future negotiations they may have with the owner or with the solicitors to the mortgagees, with a view to purchase, have regard to the price paid for the adjoining estate, the O'Reilly Digby Estate, now in the hands of the Board.


No, Sir, this property has not been purchased by the Board.
