HC Deb 19 March 1906 vol 154 cc65-6

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether any representation has been made to the Estates Commissioners by the people of Athenry in respect to the 311 acres of mountain land for which Mrs. Lopdell is negotiating purchase with the Commissioners; and will he say how much of this land is under timber, and were any applications received by the Estate Commissioners for a portion of this land from small holders and people living in the vicinity.

(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The Estates Commissioners inform me that all applications for land on the Goodbody estate were duly considered when the estate was being dealt with. Eleven acres out of the lot which Mrs. Lopdell is purchasing consist of land under timber. No application for this particular lot was received by the Estates Commissioners.
