HC Deb 21 March 1906 vol 154 cc384-5

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can say whether the Estates Commissioners have received an evicted tenant's form claiming to be reinstated signed by Patrick Myles, junior, to whom his father, Patrick Myles, senior, assigned his farm in 1900, previous to the eviction of the family in March, 1902; whether he is aware that the landlady, Mrs. Caroline Burke, Heclash, Fermoy, is not averse to reinstate Myles in his former holding of seventy acres, situated at Ballingaparka, Kilworth, county Cork and whether, under the circumstances, the Estates Commissioners will intervene with a view to bring about a satisfactory arrangement.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that they have received from Patrick Myles an application for re-instatement in his former holding on the estate referred to. The Commissioners approached the owner with the object of facilitating the reinstatement of the tenant, but her solicitors stated that she did not wish to part with her interest in the holding in question.
