§ MR. HOGAN (Tipperary, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, if any proceedings for the sale of the French estate, in North Tipperary, are pending; is he aware that the owner of this estate is u Dublin money lender, and that nine tenants in Drinagh, Ballyduft', and Sharrow, all in the parish of Dorha, arc being harassed by this man; will he say what terms this landlord has offered;. and will he see that the untenanted land on this estate is secured for those tenants on the estate whose holdings are uneconomic.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners are unable to identify any proceedings for the sale of this estate as having been instituted before them, and they have no knowledge of the circumstances of the estate.
