HC Deb 09 May 1906 vol 156 c1306
MR. LUNDON (Limerick, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that on the townland of Ballinamona, convenient to the town of Cloughjordan, in North Tipperary, 600 acres of untenanted land, which for the past twenty years have been let for grazing purposes on the eleven months system by the late owner, Mr. Edward Kennedy, are now up for sale; and will he give instructions to the Estates Commissioners to purchase these lands, with the view of giving them to farmers' sons and labourers around, so as to help in stopping the tide of emigration.


I am informed by the Estates Commissioners that no proceedings for the sale of the untenanted land referred to have come before them. If the Commissioners should be furnished with particulars of the property for sale, including the name and address of the owner, they will consider the question whether they should purchase.
