HC Deb 13 May 1907 vol 174 cc579-80

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, if he can say how matters stand on the Mountshannon estate, in the county Limerick; has it yet been divided; if so, have portions of it been allotted to Mrs. Hanora Londregan, of Toolmaine, parish of Doon, James Conway, of Gurtavalla, Doon, Simon Ryan, of Cross, Pallasgrean, and Ellen Rafferty, of Knockroe, Kilteely, all in the county Limerick, and all evicted tenants on whose farms are planters, and who applied for portions of this Mount-shannon estate in lieu of their farms as far back as two years ago; and will he communicate with the Estates Commissioners so as to bring about this result.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners inform me that they have settled the scheme for the distribution of the land on this estate. The names of the two persons first mentioned in the Question have been included in the scheme, but not the names of the other two.
