HC Deb 17 May 1906 vol 157 c663
MR. O'DOWD (Sligo, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Mr. Corboy, of Elden Lodge, Manor-hamilton, county Leitrin, has sold to his tenants in Annaghcarty and Drum-shunnagh, in the neighbourhood of Riverstown, county Sligo; that this sale took place in February 1905, the tenants signing the necessary legal agreements; and that instead of completing the sale Mr. Corboy sent his tenants civil bills on two occasions within the one year for one and a half years' rent, which amounts they have had to pay; and whether steps will be taken to have this sale sanctioned by the Estates Commissioners, so that these tenants may in future be saved from further proceedings and expense.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that no proceedings in respect of the sale of this estate have come before them, and that they have no information as to the matters referred to in the Question.
