HC Deb 31 March 1908 vol 187 c327

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that in May, 1906, Mr. Richard Davoren agreed to sell his estate at Killasona, County Longford, to his tenants and to divide his residential holding at Killasona amongst his said tenants; whether the agreements to purchase have yet been lodged with the Estates Commissioners; and, if not, will they ask the landlord or his representative for an explanation of the matter.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that proceedings have been instituted for the sale to them of the estate of Mr. Richard Davoren, comprising tenanted, untenanted, and demesne lands, and including the lands of Killaconna, The matter is at present in the hands of an inspector for inquiry and report.
