HC Deb 30 August 1909 vol 10 c159W

asked the 'Chief Secretary whether 200 acres of the Goring estate, Ballynonty, county Tipperary, is at present held on the 11 months' system by a man named Hughes who has other large farms; whether it is intended to create a tenancy for him so as to make Trim eligible to purchase this farm; and, seeing that there are a number of uneconomic holdings around this land and some evicted tenants in the locality, will the Commissioners refuse to entertain any proposal from Hughes?


The Estates Commissioners cannot trace proceedings for the sale of the lands of Ballynonty as pending before them under the Irish Land Act, 1903, and they have no information as regards the creation of a tenancy in the Mr. Hughes referred to.
