§ Mr. O'SULLIVAN
asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that Lord Kenmare has in the immediate vicinity of Killarney, exclusive of his demesne, a large amount of untenanted land; and whether steps will be taken to secure some of this land for the purpose of providing farms for the evicted tenants and allotments for the working men of Killarney?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Congested Districts Board have instituted proceedings for the acquisition of 704 acres of untenanted land on the estate of the Earl of Kenmare, county Kerry, under the provisions of the Evicted Tenants Act, 1907. The owner has lodged a petition under Section 2 (5) of the Act, which has not yet been determined.
