HC Deb 09 May 1906 vol 156 c1307

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland can he say whether the Fitz-gerald-Tuthill estate in Ballyloundaish, Herbertstown, county Limerick, has come before the Land Commission for sale to the tenants; and, if so, whether Thomas M'Grath, evicted tenant, or the planter Devitt from Gashell, has been returned us the tenant under the sale.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that proceedings for the sale of this estate have been instituted before them. Having learnt that Daniel Devitt, the present tenant of the holding formerly occupied by M'Grath, was prepared to surrender the same to M'Grath on receiving compensation, the Commissioners informed the vendor's solicitor of the course which they were prepared to adopt in the case. The Commissioners have not yet heard whether the parties are prepared to carry out the arrangement suggested.
