HC Deb 27 May 1909 vol 5 c1472W

asked the Chief Secretary whether the Estates Commissioners are now in a position to deal with the case of Mr. Thomas O'Leary, at present residing in Tralee, but formerly evicted from his holding on the Herbert estate near Killarney; and whether the Commissioners are taking any steps to secure any of the farms at present offered for sale in the district to provide for evicted tenants?


The Estates Commissioners inform me that the holding in question has been purchased by the present occupier under the Land Purchase Acts, and that O'Leary's name has been noted for consideration in connection with the allotment of untenanted land to be acquired by them. As regards the concluding portion of the question, advances cannot be made from the Land Purchase Fund for the purchase of tenants' interests.
