HC Deb 09 July 1906 vol 160 c533

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have received a copy of a resolution passed by the people of the parish of Closetoken, Loughrea, requesting the Commissioners to communicate with the landlord of a small property in the parish, to wit, Colonel O'Hara, Glenaboy, Galway City, with a view of endeavouring to restore Mrs. Duffy or her next-of-kin to the holding out of which she was evicted some twelve years ago; and whether, seeing that the terms of agreement have been signed by the agricultural tenants to purchase their holdings, he will ask the Commissioners to accede at once to the prayer of the resolution and try and have this lady reinstated.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that they have received the resolution referred to. Mrs. Duffy's case has been noted and will be fully considered by the Commissioners when the owner of the estate institutes, as they understand he is about to do, proceedings for sale under the Irish Land Act, 1903.
