§ MR. MURPHY (Kerry, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Congested Districts Board propose to take any steps for the enlargement and improvement of holdings in the Gneevgullia and Rathmore districts of the county of Kerry, where some large farms are at present available for the purpose; and if he can state if the board have any representative in the county, and what his name and address are at the present time.
The Congested Districts Board have not yet purchased any land near the townland first named in the Question, and, are, therefore, not in a position to take present steps for the enlargement of the holdings on that townland. Rathmore is not situate within the congested districts. The farms referred to in the Question have not yet been offered for sale to the board by either the owners or occupiers. Mr. A. H. McLean, who is stationed at Tralee, is the board's inspector in charge of the estates purchased by them in the counties of Kerry and Cork.
