HC Deb 26 April 1906 vol 156 c36

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the attention of the Estates Commissioners has been called to the case of Patrick Foley, of Fermoy, whose father was tenant of the farm of Consane, Water-grasshill, on the Lowe estate, county Cork, was evicted in 1880, and has since died, and to the fact that the holding is now occupied by another tenant, named Justin McCarthy, at less than half the rent paid by the evicted tenant; and whether, in view of these circumstances, the Estates Commissioners will take into consideration the claims of the son of the deceased tenant for an allotment of untenanted land not necessarily in the neighbourhood.


I am informed by the Estates Commissioners that they have received an application for reinstatement from Thomas Foley, who states that he was a joint tenant with Patrick Foley and that both were evicted in consequence of the latter having fallen into arrear in the payment of his portion of the rent. The Commissioners will enquire into the case as soon as may be possible.
