HC Deb 17 April 1907 vol 172 cc1002-3
MR. SHEEHAN (Cork County, Mid.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is † See col. 945. aware that in the case of Mrs. Ellin O'Shaughnessy, of Kilabraher, Dromina, near Charleville, negotiations were opened by the Estates Commissioners more than twelve months ago, with a view to her reinstatement on the farm from which her late husband had been evicted, and that the landlord, Captain Orpen, and the present occupier of the farm, Timothy Griffin, were both consenting to her reinstatement on condition of Griffin being provided with a farm in lieu of the one he occupies; whether the Estates Commissioners through their inspector, Mr. P. V. Guiry, have repeatedly promised to get a farm for Griffin, but have not yet done so; and whether he will state what further steps, if any, the Estates Commissioners intend to take in the matter.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that they are at present endeavouring to procure another farm for Timothy Griffin, in order to provide for the reinstatement of the evicted tenant's representative in the farm which Griffin now occupies.
