§ Mr. JAMES O'KELLY
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland why the application for reinstatement in his holding of Mr. John Cooney, Kilmore, Drumsna, county Roscommon, an evicted tenant on the estate of R. A. Shackleton, has been refused by the Land Commissioners; and whether Mr. Cooney will be given an equivalent holding under the Evicted Tenants Acts?
§ The CHIEF SECRETARY for IRELAND (Mr. Birrell)
I am informed by the Estates Commissioners that Cooney was a publican and sub-tenant of three acres, from which he appears to have been ejected on title. The reply to the concluding portion of the question is in the negative.
