HC Deb 29 March 1909 vol 3 c161W

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether nine years have elapsed since Mr. Justice Ross made an absolute order for the sale of the estate of John Joseph O'Grady, county Waterford; whether the Estates Commissioners have made an offer for the estate or for the untenanted lands comprised in it; whether the offer has been accepted; and, if so, what is the cause of the delay in the payment of the purchase money?


I am informed that the land judge made an absolute order for the sale of this estate on 27th April 1900, and that the whole of the estate has since been sold. There was no untenanted land on the estate, and the Estates Commissioners made no offer for any part of it.
