§ MR. DUFFY (Galway, S.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if any communication 425 has reached the Estates Commissioners regarding the sale of the grazing farm, Cahertrim, Ardrahan, county Galway, belonging to Mr. Edwin Martyn, Tylara, Ardrahan, to a large agricultural farmer named Diviney, living several miles distant; and whether, seeing that the farm is surrounded by small cottier tenants, will the Commissioners inquire into all the local circumstances before this sale is sanctioned.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The Estates Commissioners inform me that they are unable to trace the receipt of any communication with regard to the farm referred to, and no proceedings for the sale of this property have been instituted before them.
