HC Deb 11 July 1906 vol 160 c893

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can say whether Mr. James O'Grady Delmege has made application under the Land Act, 1903, to the Estates Commissioners to purchase his estate at Glensharrold, in the county of Limerick; and whether, having regard to the fact that there is grazing land and a number of tenants of uneconomic holdings on this mountainous property, they will, in the event of purchase, divide these lands amongst them to carry out the object of the Act with respect to such holdings.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that Mr. Delmege has not up to the present instituted proceedings for the sale to them of his estate. If, however, the Commissioners should purchase the estate, they will, when dividing the untenanted land, have due regard to the wants of the tenants.
