HC Deb 29 November 1906 vol 166 cc319-20

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if agreements for the sale of the George Stewart Smith estate, county Cavan, have been filed, and when, with the names of the townlands; has the townland of Latnadronagh been excluded; will he say if the landlord has refused to sell two other townlands in the county; and will an inspector visit the estate.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that purchase agreements in respect of the estate mentioned were lodged with them in April, 1905. The townlands included in the estate for sale are:—Portanure, Drumkeel, Shan-now, Kilmainham, Corlateerin, Drumegil, Latnadronagh, Drumcarey, and Ardleny. The lands of Latnadronagh are not excluded. It does not appear from the documents lodged, that the vendor is the owner of any lands in the neighbourhood other than those for which purchase agreements have been lodged. An inspection of the estate will take place in about six months' time.
