HC Deb 19 November 1908 vol 196 c1423
MR. SHEEHAN (Cork County, Mid)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have received a claim from Jeremiah Creedon, an evicted tenant on the estate of Sir George Colthurst, situate in Millstreet rural district, County Cork; has the landlord offered to sell this portion of his estate direct to the Estates Commissioners; and, if so, will the claim of the evicted tenant mentioned, and other evicted tenants, be considered in the settlement of the estate by the Commissioners.


The Estates Commissioners have received an application from Jeremiah Creedon, who appears to have been a sub-tenant, and have decided to take no action in the matter. The portion of the Colthurst estate referred to in the Question does not appear to be pending for sale before the Commissioners. When it comes before them they will consider the applications of all evicted tenants who have been noted as suitable.
