HC Deb 30 August 1909 vol 10 cc158-9W

asked the Chief Secretary whether the tenants of the Connor estate, at Ballineen, county Cork, have signed agreements to purchase their farms; whether Denis O'Sullivan, an. evicted tenant on the estate, is included in the scheme for the purchase of their farms; whether his was an ordinary tenancy outside the demesne boundaries; and, if so, will steps be taken by the Estates Commissioners to refuse to create those lands an estate for the purpose of sale unless O'Sullivan shall be included in the scheme of purchase?


Proceedings for the sale of the estate of Mr. H. D. Connor, county Cork, have been instituted before the Estates Commissioners. The Commissioners have inquired into and considered Dennis O'Sullivan's application for reinstatement in a holding formerly occupied by him and have decided to take no action in the matter.
