§ MR. O'SHAUGHNESSY (Limerick, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether 55 he is aware that J. Scanlan, of Kilgullinan, Knockaderry, in the county of Limerick, was evicted from his holding in the year 1887, which contains thirty-one-and-a-half acres, held by him at the yearly rent of £63 10s., valuation £44; that since the eviction he died, leaving his widow, Kate Scanlan, and family surviving; that the evicted farm is in the landlord's (Major B. Sheehy's) hands; and whether under these circumstances, he will say if the Estates Commissioners will approach the landlord with the view of settling this case and reinstating Mrs. Scanlan.
The Estates Commissioners have no knowledge of the facts of this case. They have received from Mrs. Kate Scanlan an application for reinstatement, and have approached the owner with a view to effecting a settlement, but have not yet received a reply from him. The local inspector will make further enquiries in due course.
