HC Deb 27 June 1910 vol 18 c682

asked the Chief Secretary whether, in regard to the estate of Dr. Foley Brew, or of next-of-kin, Mrs. M. B. Lynch, of Cohey, Kilfenora, county Clare, a price had been fixed by the Estates Commissioners previously to the passing of the Irish Land Act, 1909; whether he is aware that there is a desire not only on the part of the prospective tenants, but also on the part of the owner, that the estate, which is untenanted, should be divided with as little delay as possible; and whether steps can be taken to expedite the matter?


The Estates Commissioners had not fixed a price for this estate prior to the passing of the Act of 1909. The Congested Districts Board have decided to continue the proceedings for the purchase of the property, which lies in a congested districts county, and will have it inspected at a very early date.
