HC Deb 31 March 1908 vol 187 c326

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that a, portion of the grazing farms of Tully, Asnagh, and Ardagullion, at present held by Mr. James W. Bond, D.L., was at one time in occupation of a number of Catholic tenants who were evicted from it by Mr. Bond's grandfather; and, if so, will the Commissioners take any steps to have these tenants reinstated.


The Estates Commissioners have no knowledge of the face alleged in the Question. The only application for reinstatement in any of the townlands mentioned which the Estates Commissioners have received is one sent by the representative of a tenant evicted forty-three years ago. The applicant therefore is not eligible for reinstatement under section 2 of the Act of 1903.
