HC Deb 03 July 1906 vol 159 c1636
MR. NOLAN (Louth, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the recent eviction of Michael Duffy, of Roodstown, Ardee Union, county Louth, by the Earl of Dartrey, for non-payment of a rack-rent: whether he is aware that the tenant was unable to enter the Land Court to have a fair rent fixed, owing to arrears of rent of twenty-five years' standing, with subsequent law costs; that the eviction has been condemned by resolution by the Ardree Board of Guardians; and whether he can hold out any hope of a speedy restoration of Mr. Duffy to his holding.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that they have no knowledge of the matters of fact alleged in the Question, and that Michael Duffy has not lodged with them an application for reinstatement. Should such application be made to the Commissioners they will have it duly enquired into and dealt with.

Forward to
