HC Deb 23 February 1911 vol 21 cc2059-60

asked the Chief Secretary whether he was aware that, in the case of the Fitzgerald estate, Kinlea, Kilmihill, West Clare, the landlord had offered to sell to the Congested Districts Board, and that the disputes that had arisen in connection with this estate had involved extra police tax to the extent of over £400 a year; and whether, in view of a peaceful settlement, the matter would be dealt with as expeditiously as possible?


The offer of the Congested Districts Board for the estate referred to has been recently accepted by the owner, and the Board will proceed with the re-arrangement of the holdings and distribution of turbary as soon as the vendor gives possession. The Inspector-General informs me that the charge for extra police employed in connection with the dispute is about £170 per annum.
