HC Deb 16 August 1911 vol 29 cc2068-9W

asked the Chief Secretary whether the Estates Commissioners have received applications for reinstatement from the following tenants who were evicted from their holdings on the Marquis of Lansdowne's state, county Kerry, namely, from Mrs. Bessie O'Shea, Kenmare; Thomas O'Shea, Kenmare; James Shea, Kenmare; Mrs. Kate Walsh, Kenmare; Timothy Daly, Granafulla, Waterville; Patrick Daly, Granafulla, Waterville; Mrs. P. Curran, Murragh, Waterville; and James Sullivan, Spunkane, Waterville; what action the Estates Commissioners have taken, or intend to take, with a view to the reinstatement of those evicted tenants; and, if the Estates Commissioners have taken no steps to reinstate these evicted tenants, whether he will direct inquiries to be made in their cases?


The Estates Commissioners have received applications from James Shea, Timothy Daly, and Patrick Daly, for reinstatement in holdings formerly occupied by them on the Lansdowne Estate, county Kerry, and have noted their applications for consideration in the allotment of untenanted land acquired by the Commissioners. The Commissioners have also received similar applications from Bessie O'Shea, Kate Walsh, Patrick Curran, and Johanna Sullivan, and, after inquiry and consideration, have decided to take no action in these cases. The Commissioners do not appear to have received any application from the Thomas O'Shea referred to by the hon. Member.
