§ MR. DUFFY (Galway, S.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will say whether Mrs. Lambert, of Castle Ellen, Athenry, has purchased from the Commissioners, in or about fifty acres of untenanted land on the Goodbody estate, Athenry; how much of the said land was under timber; and whether any applications reached the Estates Commissioners applying for a holding on this farm.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) I am informed by the Estates Commissioners that Mrs. Lambert has agreed to purchase from them a portion of this estate comprising eighty-five acres, of which about eighty-one acres are under timber. No application for these particular lands was received from any one except Mrs. Lambert.
