HC Deb 31 March 1909 vol 3 cc337-8

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the estate of George Smyth O'Connor, in the county of Roscommon, has been sold to the tenants or to the Estates Commissioners; and, if so, whether the farm known as Rathconnor, forming portion of this estate, is included in the sale to the Commissioners for the purpose of having it distributed among the occupiers of uneconomic holdings?


This estate has not been sold to the Estates Commissioners, but the owner has entered into purchase agreements under the Act of 1903 for the sale to the tenants of their holdings which lie in the townland of Rathconnor and adjoining townlands.
