§ Mr. JOHN PHILLIPS
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he would call on the Estates Commissioners to explain how it was that, in the sale of the lands of Brannigan, the property of the Messrs. Shaws, of Ballymahon, county Longford, one of the evicted tenants, Patt Kenny, on this property, got no opportunity of purchasing either the part he lost or the part he still held in possession; and whether the Commissioners would provide Patt Kenny with some other holding?
§ Mr. REDMOND BARRY
The Estates Commissioners have not received an application from any one named Patt Kenny seeking reinstatement in a holding on the estate of J. R. Shaw, and another in the county Longford. There was a Pat Kenny, a sub-tenant on the estate referred to, who occupied two plots on the lands of Bally-branigan amounting to less than one acre,1012W and the Commissioners decided that this was not a case in which they should declare the sub-tenant to be a direct tenant for the purposes of sale.
