HC Deb 17 May 1906 vol 157 cc664-5

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether arrangements are yet complete for the sale of the estate of Mr. William Beamish, Muckross, Clonakilty; whether he is aware that a tenant on the estate named Daniel O'Leary, of Douneen, was evicted for non-payment of one and a half year's rent (including hanging gale), the rent being double the Government valuation; and whether, seeing the farm has since remained in the hands of the landlord, and that O'Leary has returned from America to claim reinstatement, steps will be taken by the Estates Commissioners to inquire from Mr. Beamish whether he will allow O'Leary to sign as purchasing-tenant for this farm, and, in case he should refuse to do so, whether the Estates Commissioners will refuse to declare the Beamish property an estate for the purpose of sale.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that they have received from Daniel O'Leary an application for reinstatement on the estate referred to, and have referred the application to one of their inspectors for inquiry and report.
