HC Deb 28 February 1910 vol 14 c581

asked the Chief Secretary if he will state the reason why the Estates Commissioners have taken no steps to provide a holding for the family of Terence Reilly, of Cooldoney, North Longford, an evicted tenant, who was recently found dead at the back of a ditch on his evicted holding; whether any inquiry was made into the facts of this case by the Estates Commissioners; and whether there is any hope of there being an equivalent holding found for them on some of the adjoining ranches in the district?


I understand that Terence Reilly died in Mullingar Asylum three years ago. His son is a clerk in Dublin, and the Commissioners do not consider him a suitable person to work a holding.
