HC Deb 16 May 1906 vol 157 c484

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, in the matter of the Hungerford and Clorahn estate, barony Duhallow, county Cork, whether he is aware that repeated applications have been made to the Estates Commissioners for the reinstatement of two evicted tenants, James Reen and Goffrey Reen, but no reply has been received beyond a mere acknowledgment of the application; and whether, in view of the fact that a sale of the estate is pending, that the landlord offers no objection to reinstatement, and that the present occupant is willing to surrender the holdings on receiving reasonable compensation, the Estates Commissioners will arrange to send an inspector to the estate with a view to facilitate the reinstatement of these tenants with the least possible delay.


The Estates Commissioners have been informed by the Owner's Agent that Breen, who occupies the holding in question, has signed an agreement to purchase, and that the owner does not intend to depart from the terms arranged with him. The Commissioners will, however, make inquiries with a view of ascertaining whether an arrangement is possible.
