HC Deb 28 April 1910 vol 17 c628
Dr. O'NEILL (for Mr. Lundon)

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he is aware that the sheriff has executed a decree against Garrett Barry, of Ballinaw, Herbertstown, county Limerick, tenant on the Tuthill property, because he refused to pay what is known as the dead half-gale, which is due for the past fifty years; whether he is aware that this action is due to the fact that Mr. Barry has refused to pay what he considers an exorbitant price for his land; and, having regard to the circumstances of the case and the fact that Barry has twelve children, he will ask the Commissioners to intervene and try to bring about an amicable settlement, and thus prevent the discontent and trouble which will arise if Captain Tuthill, Esker, Lucan, county Dublin, proceeds any further on these lines?


I have nothing to add to my reply to the question on the same subject asked by the hon. Member on the 20th instant.
